### If a student was walking a distance of 150 meters in 30 seconds, what would that students average speed be?

• A.

50 meters/second

• B.

30 meters/second

• C.

45 meters/second

• D.

35 meters/second

• E.

25 meters/second

A. 50 meters/second
Explanation
The average speed of the student can be calculated by dividing the total distance covered by the time taken. In this case, the student walked a distance of 150 meters in 30 seconds. Dividing 150 meters by 30 seconds gives us an average speed of 5 meters per second. Therefore, the correct answer is 50 meters/second.

### What is the correct equation for average speed?

• A.

Average speed = total time ÷ total distance

• B.

Average speed = total distance ÷ total time

• C.

Average speed = total distance x total time

• D.

Average speed = total distance + total time

• E.

Average speed = total distance - total time

B. Average speed = total distance ÷ total time
Explanation
The correct equation for average speed is to divide the total distance traveled by the total time taken. This is because average speed is defined as the total distance traveled divided by the total time taken to cover that distance.
