Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

26.5 min at 88.4 km/h, 12.3 min at 97.4 km/h, 52.5 min at 33.5 km/h, and spends 15.7 min

speed=distance/time

distance= time x speed

88.4 x 26.5/60=37.37km,97.4 x 12.3/60=19.967km,33.5 x 52.5/60=29.3125km

total distance=88.6495km

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
