In 1989, Carl Lewis established a world record when he ran the 100 meter dash in 9.92 seconds. What was his average speed(in m/s) for the race? Remember to include your data, equation, and work when solving this problem.
I am not sure how to do this problem. Please help!!
The goal of this problem is to find his speed in meters per second. This is technically meters DIVIDED by seconds, so divide 100 by 9.92. So, his average speed in the race was about 10.08 meters per second. Hope this made sense! :)
