Seeing that the mouse has hobbled 3.2 meters over the course of 35 seconds, you could say that every second he moved 320 / 35 centimeters. Since 1 meter equals 100 centimeters and it was done in 35 seconds total.

That brings you to the conclusion that he must move at a speed of 9.14 centimeters per second.
Since every minute has 60 seconds, we can now check and see how many centimeters the mouse moved per minute by multiplying that 9.14 centimeters he moves per second by 60 seconds. Which leaves us with an answer of 548.57 centimeters, which obviously is equal to 5.49 meters per minute.

You also stated that you had to check how much distance the mouse had covered during 25 minutes which I think you should by now be able to solve yourself by checking how many meters the mouse moves per minute and then multiplying that by the total of minutes you want to check.

Hope this helped :)

velocity = distance/time



so, lets call the mouse's velocity v.


v= 3.2/35      m.s^-1




distance = velocity*time



Lets say the distance the mouse travels is called x, so:


x= v*(25*60)     m


Since v is in meter per second, you need to convert the time to seconds.
