You are walking toward the back of a bus that is moving forward with a constant velocity. Describe your motion relative to the bus and relative to a point on the ground.

A car travels at an average speed of 30 m/s for .8 h. Find the total distance traveled in km.

    I will be happy to critique your thinking.

    distance=velocity*time
    change hours to seconds.

    ok thanks. But for the first question, if I am walking toward the bus at the same velocity it is traveling, is there no motion of me relative to the bus?

    The question is ambiguously stated. It apparently means that you are INSIDE the bus walking towards the back of the bus.
