a man walk 32.5m southward and 78m westward.if it took him 30 minutes to reach his destination.find his average speed?

• physics -

88 km/h =88000/3600= 24.44 m/s
------
average SPEED = distance/time taken =(32.5+78)/30•60=0.062 m/s
displacement = sqrt(32.5²+78²)=84.5
average VELOCITY = displacement/time taken =84.5/30•60=0.047 m/s
