To School and Back

Suppose you travel directly between home and school at a rate of X miles per hour and return directly home from school at a rate of Y miles per hour. X does not equal Y. You take the same route both times. What is your average rate for the entire round trip (count only the time you are traveling either from home to school or from school to home)? The answer is NOT (X+Y)/2.
