Compare Speeds
Calculate the speed of each object. You must show your math and final speed for each
object/person even if logically you can figure it out. Place a circle around the fastest.

14) Anjali drives a car distance of 60 km east in 3 hours towards Las Vegas. After stopping
in St. Bruno for lunch. The car travels 70 km northeast for another 3 hours and stops for gas
in Unionville before continuing to Las Vegas. The last leg took 2.5 hour to travel 55 km
northeast. If a bird flew straight from the house to Las Vegas the distance would be 100 km.
Label the diagram with the information you
were given.

(home to St Bruno)?
What is the speed for the second leg of the
trip (St. Bruno to Unionville)?
What is the speed for the last leg of the trip
(Unionville to Las Vegas)?
