    Is my answer correct??

    calculate using this formula

    speed = distance

    my first answer is :

    travelled 10meters in 15 seconds = .666667 m/s

    is this correct?

    or would it be..

    .666667 = 10

    "travelled 10meters in 15 seconds = .666667 m/s" is correct. Just look at the units, and carry them along in your calculation. 10m/15s = 0.67m/s -- do the math on the units as well as the numbers, and use that to check that you've done the math correctly.
