    Hello!

    First, remember that speed is a variation of position compared to a variation of time. It can be determined using the following formula:

    v = Δx/Δt

    where

    Δx = variation in position 

    and

    Δt = variation in time 

    If you know the speed and the time variation, you can isolate the displacement variable using the formula previously mentioned, like this:

    Δx = Δt × v

    Finally, you can replace the variables with the data provided to you!

     

    I hope you found my answer helpful, do not hesitate to ask more questions!
