Let's play a game. If I went halfway to a town 60 km away at the speed of 30 km/hour, how fast do I have to go the rest of the way to have an average speed of 60 km/hour over the entire trip?

You have \$100 with you and you have to buy 100 balls with it. 100 is the exact figure and you cant go below or above the numbers and you have to use the entire \$100.
If there is no kind of tax applied how many of each of the following balls will you be able to buy ?

Green Balls costing \$6
Yellow Balls costing \$3
Black Balls costing \$0.10
