Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

it is important to obtain the speeds of both the butterfly and the dragon.  speed is calculated by distance divided by time. Therefore:

butterfly - 82 feet/4seconds = 20.5 feet/sec

dragon- 50 feet/2 seconds = 25 feet/sec

the butterfly is faster by 4.5 feet/sec

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
