formula at the cost of one point. ' ' Best of Luck! God Bless You! Problem 1 You start from home along a straight road (xaxis) at 30 mph. After 40
minutes, you run out of gas. To reach a gas station you walk back 3 km in 45 minutes. What is your (i) average speed, (ii) average velocity by the time you return to your car?
