Find the average speed for each climb. Which average speed is greater?

a) The world record for the fastest pole climb is 10.75 s to climb a 24-m pole.

b) The world record for the fastest coconut tree climb is 4.88 s to climb an 888-cm tree.

a) 24 meters is equal to 2400 centimeters.

so the average speed for the fastest pole clime is \(\frac{2400}{10.75}\) = ~ 223.3 centimeters per second.

 

b) the average speed would be \(\frac{888}{4.88} \) = ~182 centimeters per second.

 

so the average speed for question a is greater.

 

hope this helped! please let me know if you are confused about anything i did :)
