## Homework Statement

Heather and Matthew walk with an average velocity of 0.98m/s eastward. If it takes them 34 min to walk to the store, what is their displacement?

## Homework Equations

*V*avg = Δ

*x*/Δ

*t*(since I'm looking for the displacement I changed it to) Δ

*x*=

*V*avgΔ

*t*

## The Attempt at a Solution

Δ

*x*=

*V*avgΔ

*t*=(0.98 m/s)(34min)=33.32m East

When I looked at the back of the textbook it said

*2.00km East*, how did they get that number?
