A person jogs eight complete laps around a 400m track in a total time of 13.5 minutes. Calculate, in m/s the average velocity.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I thought that I knew how to do this, but I think I just figured out the average speed. This is what I did:

400x8= 3200m

13.5/1 x 60sec./1 min= 810 seconds

3200m divided by 810 sec.= 3.95 m/sec
