Answer:
The speed of the plane is [tex]v=1.2\: m/s[/tex]
Stepbystep explanation:
The vector (5,6) represents a point in the coordinate system timeposition.
So, we have that at t = 5 s the position is x = 6.
Let's recall that the slope of this vector is the speed, then using the tangent definition:
[tex]v=\frac{x}{t}=\frac{6}{5}[/tex]
[tex]v=1.2\: m/s[/tex]
I hope it helps you!
