Answer: First portion is greater than second portion.

Step-by-step explanation:

Time taken to hiked down a trail = 10 minutes

Change in elevation = (-) 170 feet

Speed is given by

begin{gathered}Speed=frac{Distance}{Time}\\Speed=frac{170}{10}\\Speed=17text{ feet per minute}end{gathered}

Speed=

Time

Distance

Speed=

10

170

Speed=17 feet per minute

Similarly,

Time taken to hiked down a trail = 20 minutes

Change in elevation = (-)220 feet

Speed is given by

Speed=frac{Distance}{Time}Speed=

Time

Distance

begin{gathered}Speed=frac{220}{20}\\Speed=11text{ feet per minutes}end{gathered}

Speed=

20

220

Speed=11 feet per minutes

So, we can see that first portion of the hike where he hiked down a trail at a steady rate for 10 minutes and her change in elevation was (-) 170 feet, was her rate of change in elevation greater.

As 17 feet per minutes is greater than 11 feet per minutes.
