Physics problem can't figure this out! need help asap please

  1. Oct 2, 2007 #1
    This figure attached gives the path of a squirrel moving about on level ground, from point A (at time t = 0), to points B (at t = 6.00 min), C (at t = 12.0 min), and finally D (at t = 18.0 min). Both axes are marked in increments of 10.0 m (therefore the diagram is not drawn to scale). Consider the average velocities of the squirrel from point A to each of the other three points.

    (a) Of the three average velocities, which has the least magnitude?
    A, B, or C?

    What is this average velocity in magnitude-angle notation?
    ______m/s, ° (counterclockwise from the positive x axis)

    (b) Which has the greatest magnitude?
    A, B, or C?

    What is this average velocity in magnitude-angle notation?
    _______m/s, ° (counterclockwise from the positive x axis)
