(Based on OpenStax Calculus, Volume 1, section 4.4, exercise 190)Part A. At 10:17 a.m., you are traveling 55 mph when you pass a police car that is stopped on thefreeway. You pass a second stopped police car at 10:53 a.m., when you are also traveling 55mph. The second police car is located 39 miles from the first one. If the speed limit is 60 mph,can the police cite you for speeding? Why or why not?Part B. After being cited for speeding in Part A, you appeal the ticket on the grounds that your car isthe new model with the high tech teleporter drive, which allows the car to move instantaneouslyfrom one place to another.

Step 1

Given:

The distance betwee two police cars = 39 miles

The time when crossing the first police car = 10:17 am

The time when crossing the second police car = 10:53 am

The speed limit is 60 mph.

Step 2

The time interval between crossingthe two police cars

= Time while crossing the secon car - Time while crossing the first car

= 10:53 - 10:17

= 36 minutes

= (36/60) hours

=  0.6 hours

Step 3

Average Speed = Distance / Time

= 39 miles ...
