Best Answer

Average speed = Distance / time

for example.

you travel 60 miles in 2 hours

60/2 = 30 Mph

you travel 60 miles in 3 hours

60/3 = 20 Mph

Another answer

average speed is equals to total distance covered divided by total time taken

just add all the distance covered and then divide it by summing all the time taken to cover that distance.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

Is it easier to calculate speed or average speed?

I'm sure that average speed would be easier to calculate than instantaneous speed. To calculate average speed, just take the time that it takes to travel between two points, and divide that into the distance between the points.
