Hey everybody, I need help on a few word problems. The major problem I'm having is finding a formula to use.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A bus is going to a football game and leaves at 4:00pm. It travels 20.91 miles to the game in 33 minutes. What is the bus' average speed in miles per hour?

I'm completely clueless on this.

How man seconds would it take a boat to accelerate from 13 m/s to 26 m/s over a distance of 1.25 km?

For this problem I'm using the average acceleration formula, but i'm not getting the answer my teacher got.

Thanks for your help!
