Answer:

#v=3,8" m/s (the green vector shows direction)"#

Explanation:

enter image source here
#"displacement between the Points A and B :"#
#Delta s=sqrt(9^2+7^2)#
#Delta s=sqrt(81+49)#
#Delta s=sqrt130#
#Delta s=11,40 " m"#

#v=(Delta s)/(Delta t)#

#v=(11,40)/3#

#v=3,8" m/s (the green vector shows direction)"#
