 P: 64 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A caiman swims 190 meters at a speed of 6 m/s. It then enters a stream and slows to 4 m/s for 340 meters. What is the average speed of the crocodile? 10 minutes ago - 4 days left to answer. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution

You have two distance and speed sets from which you can get times. Add the times and add the distances, now you have a new r = D/t.

I did that. I added 190m and 340m and I got 530m as the total distance. I did the v=d/t formula on both distances and i got the times as 85 s and 31.66 s. I then divided 530m.116.66 s and i got 4.54 m/s but that is incorrect.
