Answer

The average velocity is $~0.5 ~km/min~$ (east)

Work Step by Step

We can find the displacement: $displacement = 10~km~- 3~km = 7~km ~(east)$ $average~velocity = \frac{displacement}{time}$ $average ~velocity= \frac{7~km}{14~min}$ $average ~velocity= 0.5~km/min$ (east) The average velocity is $~0.5 ~km/min~$ (east)
