The path around the park is 0.5 miles long. If you walk for 2 hours and complete 10 laps, what is your average speed? (First you must know your total distance)


2.5 miles per hour

  • Q: What is the total distance walked? A: The total distance is the product of the length of the path and the number of laps. Total distance = 0.5 * 10 = 5 miles.
  • Q: What is the average speed? A: Average speed is the total distance divided by the time taken. Average speed = 5 miles / 2 hours = 2.5 miles per hour.
