Worksheet 15: Calculating Average Speed, Distance, and Time

1. Calculate the average speed of a car that travels 70 km in 1.5 hours.

= 46.7 km/h (rounded to one decimal places)

2. How long does it take a person running at a rate of 4 m/s to run a distance of 260 m?

Ît = 65 seconds

3. How far would a snowmobiler travel in 0.5 hours at a rate of 25 km/h?

Îd = 12.5 km

4. Melanie ran the 100 meter race in 12 seconds. What was her average speed?

= 8.3 m (rounded to one decimal point)

5. If a boat sailed for 6 hours at an average speed of 55 km/h, what distance did the boat travel?

Îd = 330 km

6. How much time did it take a plane flying at 575 km/h to travel a distance of 1700 km?

Ît = 2.96 hours (rounded to two decimal places)

Ît = 3.0 hours (rounded to one decimal point)
