**1. Homework Statement**

A man walked 440 m 50 degrees polar positive, and then 580 m 185 degrees polar positive. The entire trip took 150 min.

Total distance travelled?

The displacement of the man?

Average of the man in m/min?

Average velocity of the man in m/min?

**2. Homework Equations**

Speed=Total Distance/Total Time

Average velocity=Displacement/Total Time

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I graphed this out. I was accustomed to distance being N/S/W/E. Distance is a scalar quantity so it doesn't really into account positive and negative.

Would my total distance travelled be 1020 m?

Help please?

c. 1020 m/150 mins=6.8 m/s
