Expert Answer:

Speed is a scalar quantity .
 
Velocity is speed in specified direction , it is a vector , it has magnitude and direction.
 
If you walk towards North at the rate of 10 km/hour , by convention , velocity = +10 km/hr.
By same convention , if you walk towards at the rate of 10 km/hour , velocity = -10 km/hr.
 
But in both the case speed = 10 km/hr
