Question and answer
why is speed considered a derived quantity rather than a direct quantity
The S.I. system sstates that time and length are base quantities. Hence, "speed = length/time" is a derived physical quantitiy since it can be expressed in terms of the two base quantities - time and length.

Speed is considered a derived quantity because it depends on the measurement of distance and time, which are fundamental quantities. It is calculated by dividing the distance traveled by an object by the time taken, making it a combination of these two primary measurements.
