D = 9.6-2.59i

D^2 = 9.6^2 + (-2.59)^2 = 98.89

D = 9.94 m.

tan A = Y/X = -2.59/9.6 = -.26979

A = -15.1o = 15.1o S of E.

A bicyclist makes a trip that consists of three parts, each in the same direction (due north) along a straight road. During the first part, she rides for 21.0 minutes at an average speed of 9.48 m/s. During the second part, she rides for 43.5 minutes at an average speed of 3.20 m/s. Finally, during the third part, she rides for 10.2 minutes at an average speed of 10.5 m/s. (a) How far has the bicyclist traveled during the entire trip? (b) What is the average speed of the bicyclist for the trip?
