## Physics (10th Edition)

Let due west be the negative direction Average velocity = $\frac{displacement}{time}$ = $\frac{x}{t}$ Time spent hiking west = $\frac{-6440}{-2.68}$ $\approx$ 2.40 $\times$ $10^{3}$ s Let distance hiked east = $x_{e}$ Time spent hiking east = $\frac{x_{e}}{0.447}$ Displacement = $x_{e}$ - 6440 Time = 2.40 $\times$ $10^{3}$ + $\frac{x_{e}}{0.447}$ Average velocity = displacement/time -1.34 = ($x_{e}$ - 6440) / (2.40 $\times$ $10^{3}$ + $\frac{x_{e}}{0.447}$) -3.22 $\times$ $10^{3}$ - 2.998$x_{e}$ = $x_{e}$ - 6440 3.998$x_{e}$ = 3.22$\times$ $10^{3}$ $x_{e}$ $\approx$ 80.5 m
