A Runner Completed four laps of a 400m track in 6.0 minutes. Find the distance travelled and displacement of the runner.

Ok i know that distance would be 400m * 4 laps obviously but how would you write that out? What would a formula be? (Complete guess below, obviously not right.)

d1 = 400m

??? = 4 (meaning laps)

[tex]\Delta[/tex]d = ?

and my formula and therefore statement would follow..

Second Question.

Isn't finding displacement for this questions pointless because you would be in the same place you started out as? Also i don't know the equation i would use to find displacement given only speed and time.

I am in grade 10 physics so please take it easy if you think there are obvious answers and please dont give me to complicated feedback :).
