the hole once he is on the green. The ﬁrst putt
displaces the ball 9.6 m east, and the second
2.59 m south.

needed to get the ball into the hole on the
ﬁrst putt?
Answer in units of m
Answer: 9.94 m

D = 9.62.59i
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?
