    the first step is to write speed as distance divided by time (and put in the "units") \[ \frac{100 \ meters}{5\ secs} \]

    do you get the idea of putting 100 meters divided by 5 seconds ?

    can you simplify 100/5 ?

    ***im terrible at this stuff*** unfortunately, it takes work on your part to "get it". If you don't have the time to try to work this out, you won't make much progress.
