rewriting this, since it was typed wrong.

In reaching her destination, a backpacker walks with an average velocity of 1.34 m/s, due west. This average velocity results because she hikes for 6.44 km with an average velocity of 2.68 m/s, due west, turns around, and hikes with an average velocity of 0.447m/s, due east. how far EAST did she walk?

answer is neglible.. need steps, ty. (directed to pursley for clarification_)

1. 1.34W*totaltime = displacement
But displacement=6.44- .447*timeeast

total time=timeeast+6.44/2.68

set the dislacements equal

1.34*totaltime=6.44- .447(totaltime-6.44/2.68)

solve for total time, then from that , total east, and finally, distance east=.447*timeeast

check my typing.
