Calculate the time in seconds an Olympic Skier would take to finish a 5,000 meter race at an average velocity of 25 m/s downhill.

Recall that speed is distance travelled over a certain period of time, or
v = d/t
Since we know the distance (5000 m) and the speed (25 m/s), we can solve for the time:
25 = 5000/t
25t = 5000
t = 5000/25
t = 200 s
Hope this helps :3
