on normal road at 6km/h
and downhill at 12km/h.
Took him 2hr20mins to cycle home everyday.
What is the distance between his school and home?

If Pete uses normal roads when cycling home, he cycles 14km in 2hr 20mins. Of course, the distance as the crow flies between his school and home could be considerably less than that.
