(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1 A truck travels along a staright road at 80 m/s and it travels at 40 m/s for the next 1200m. what is the average velocity?

2. ave V= change d/ time

r=dt (get the total time)

3. (1600-1200)/ 50

this is incorrect

I also tried ave V= (u+v)/t and it did not work
