Step-by-step explanation:[tex]\huge\bold\red{Answer}[/tex]

ᴜᴘsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ sᴘᴇᴇᴅ= (6 – 2) = 4 ᴋᴍᴘʜ

ᴅᴏᴡɴsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ sᴘᴇᴇᴅ = (6 + 2) = 8 ᴋᴍᴘʜ

ᴜᴘsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ ᴛɪᴍᴇ = 32/4 = 8 ʜᴏᴜʀs

ᴅᴏᴡɴsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ ᴛɪᴍᴇ = 32/8 = 4 ʜᴏᴜʀs

ᴛᴏᴛᴀʟ ᴛɪᴍᴇ = 8 + 4 = 12 ʜᴏᴜʀs

ᴀʟᴛᴇʀɴᴀᴛᴇ ᴍᴇᴛʜᴏᴅ :ᴜᴘsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ sᴘᴇᴇᴅ= (6 – 2) = 4 ᴋᴍᴘʜ

ᴅᴏᴡɴsᴛʀᴇᴀᴍ sᴘᴇᴇᴅ = (6 + 2) = 8 ᴋᴍᴘʜ

ᴀᴠᴇʀᴀɢᴇ sᴘᴇᴇᴅ ғᴏʀ ᴡʜᴏʟᴇ ᴊᴏᴜʀɴᴇʏ

= 2 x 4 x 8 / ( 4 + 8 ) = 5 ⅓ ᴋᴍᴘʜ

=> ᴛᴏᴛᴀʟ ᴛɪᴍᴇ = 64/5 ⅓ = 12 ʜᴏᴜʀs
