In his famous race, a hare runs for a while, takes a nap, and then resumes running until he reaches the finish line. His total displacement from start to finish is 5.0 m east and 12 m north. The hare's total race time, including the time of napping, is 28 minutes. What is the hare's average speed in meters per minute?

Average speed = Total distance/Total time.

Total distance here will be (5+12)m and total time is given in the question. NOTE:- Even the time he spent while sleeping will be considered.

0.55 m/min 1.2 m/min 0.92 m/min 0.46 m/min This is all they have so would it be 1.2?

All right. this means the rabbit traveled in a straight line. In this case the total distance will be as following|dw:1442588022634:dw|

So the distance is represented by the red line AB. AB= \(\sf \sqrt{5^2+12^2}\) Now, do the same steps, divide the distance with total time.
