Here is a tip:

Use the definition of average velocity


  • The average velocity is the rate of change of position with respect to the rate of the time.
  • The graph of average velocity represents the distance as a function of time.
  • Calculate the change in position over vertical axis and change in time over horizontal axis when the straight line is drawn over the graph and cuts it at two different points which is called a secant line.
