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

The formula for speed is:  Speed = distance / (time to travel that distance)

Speed = 100 m / 25 sec. = 4 m/sec.   Therefore the speed is 4 meters per second.



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

As you can see from the graph,  in 5 seconds, the jogger has covered 20 meters.  In 10 seconds the jogger has covered 40 meters.  In 15 seconds the jogger has covered 60 meters.  In 20 seconds the jogger has covered 80 meters. In 25 seconds the jogger has covered 100 meters.
