solve for speed.

**bobpursley**, Friday, February 19, 2010 at 12:32amOf course not. I gave you the answer above.

speed-1.8 = distance/time

**bobpursley**, Friday, February 19, 2010 at 12:40amYou need to get a basic math tutor immediately, or drop physics. The language of physics is math, and you are operating at an algebra I level, at best. You will not succeed.

speed-1.8=30/11

speed= 30/11 + 1.8= 4.5m/s

Physics comprehension will demand much higher levels of math skills than this.

Good luck.
