How do you calculate the average speed?

Method 3 Given Multiple Speeds for Different Amounts of Time
  1. Assess what information you are given. Use this method if you know:
  2. Set up the formula for average speed.
  3. Determine the total distance.
  4. Determine the total time.
  5. Divide the total distance traveled by the total time spent traveling.

How do we calculate for speed?

For a body moving at a uniform velocity you can calculate the speed by dividing the distance traveled by the amount of time it took, for example one mile in 1/2 hour would give you 2 miles per hour. If the velocity is non-uniform all you can say is what the average speed is. Same calculation.
