How fast are you moving? How fast is how fast you are moving changing? Displacement, velocity, and acceleration form the art of understanding movement, Calculus-style.

The diagram below shows a detour (first \(8\text{ m}\) north, then \(18\text{ m}\) southeast) from a starting point to an end point. The diagram also shows the shortest distance \(12 \text{ m}\) between the starting and end points.

If a person takes the detour and reaches the end point in \(23\) seconds, what is the average velocity of the person?
