And apart from being a comprehensive answer the only problem is that it's
wrong.

You know from the text that he ran the same DISTANCE uphill as downhill, but
your calculation implies that he spent the same TIME doing both. Your
calculation implies that the hill was twice as long going down as going up.

My guess is that you're either a
alien research kinda guy
or a paranormal kinda guy
or a crop-circle kinda guy

I'll be happy to continue discussions with atheists and alt.physicists

velocity*time = distance

VT=D --> T = D/V = 2*A/8 + B/6 + B/12 = 2hours and A is the flat
distance and B is the hill distance.

We have one equation with two unknowns, we are stuck.

Wrong. The answer is 16 miles because the average speed of the runner
is 8 miles per hour whether for any value of A and B. This hint should
be way more than enough.

The average of 6 and 12 is 9.

I think the "Maliatzzi brothers" ("Car Talk" on NPR) got it wrong
too.

8 * 2hours = (A+B) = 16 miles

Right, %^)

The 'same-time' average of 6 and 12 is indeed 9, but the distance travelled
at each speed is the same, so the 'same-distance' average is 8.
