Answer:

This problem can be solved by using the formula forlinear motions. The formula relating velocity, distance and time is:

t = d / v

where t is time, d is distance and v is velocity

 

We are given that d = 24 blocks

 

<u>When v = 1 block / minute</u>

t = 24 blocks / (1 block / minute)

t = 24 minutes

 

<u>When v = 2 block / minute</u>

t = 24 blocks / (2 block / minute)

t = 12 minutes

 

Hence we can see that it takes half the time when she istravelling at 2 blocks per minute.
