Average Speed and Velocity

  1. Jan 22, 2007 #1
    I have a question for anyone willing to help that I can't seem to figure out along with quite a few of my classmates:

    -You jog at 9.5 km/h for 8.0 km, then you jump into a car and drive an additional 16 km. With what average speed must you drive your car if your average speed for the entire 24 km is to be 22 km/h?

    You need to show some work. How about you start by telling us what you know about average speed and average velocity.

    I ended up figuring it out.
