    Explanation:

    Given that, Tom briskly walks 136 meter East, then turns and walks 100 meters West.

    Let East is positive and west is negative.

    d₁ = 136 m

    d₂ = -100 m

    Time, t = 3 minutes = 180 seconds

    Average velocity,

    v=\dfrac{(-100-136)\ m}{180\ s}\\\\v=-1.32\ m/s

    So, Tom’s average velocity is 1.32 m/s and it is due west.
