Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Difference between 12 and 100 is 88.

Too, 8 minutes to travel 88 units

88/8 = 11, so the bugs average speed was 11

Answer:The distance is 88 units

speed = 11 units per minute

Step-by-step explanation:To find the distance, take the second point and subtract the first point

-100 – (-12)

-100+12 = -88

Distance is the number (direction is positive or negative)

The distance is 88 units

To find the speed, take the distance and divide by the time

speed = 88 units / 8 minutes

speed = 11 units per minute
