1 Answer

If a jogger jogs 6 Kilometers in 45 minutes, and you are looking for an answer in meters per second, here is how you solve the equation:

Convert to meters - 6 kilometers = 6000 meters

Convert to seconds - 45 minutes - 2700 seconds

Determine the distance in one second - 6000/2700 = 2.222

That is your answer.
