## Answer: A person is running 100 feet every 12 seconds, we can determine their speed.

Let us see how we will use the concept of speed, distance, and time in order to find the required answer.

**Explanation**:

As we know that the relationship between speed, distance, and time is given by Distance = Speed × Time

In the above question, we know what distance the person has traveled and at what time. Hence, using the relationship in-between speed, distance, and time we can easily calculate his speed.

### Hence, speed of the person = 100 feet / 12 sec = 8.33 feet / sec
