Answer:

#800# meters

Explanation:

We first find the speed of Sheila by the speed equation, which is:

#v=d/t#

  • #d# is the total distance traveled

  • #t# is the total time taken

And so, we get:

#v=(6000 \ "m")/(15 \ "min")#

#=400 \ "m/min"#

Now, we find the distance traveled in #2# minutes by solving for distance in the speed equation, which becomes:

#d=v*t#

Inputting our values, we get:

#(400 \ "m")/(color(red)cancelcolor(black)"min")*2color(red)cancelcolor(black)"min"=800 \ "m"#
