A) distance travelled by the girl = 12 km
time taken = 18 minutes
18 minutes = 18/60 hours = 0.3 hours

average speed =

b)
If she returned home by the same path 7 h 30 min after she left,
total time taken = 7hour and 30 min = 7.5h

total distance travelled = 12+12 = 24 km

average speed =

total displacement = 0 (as starting point and end points are same)
average velocity = total displacement/time = 0
yeah but the trip is for 18 min and not 1 hr
