Question

Jason leaves Detroit at 8:00 PM and drives at a constant speed west along I-96. He passes Ann Arbor, 40 mi from Detroit, at 8:48 PM.
(a) Express the distance traveled in terms of the time (in hours) elapsed.
d(t) =

(b) Draw the graph of the equation in part (a). (Do this on paper. Your instructor may ask you to turn in this graph.)

(c) What is the slope of this line?

(d) What does the slope represent?
the distance traveled in miles
the car's speed in miles per hour
the time traveled in hours

Step 1

here , objective is to find

a) distance as a function of time

b) The graph of the distance function

c) slope of the distance function

d) what does the slope of the distance function reprersents?

Step 2

given data,

distance travelled (d) = 40 miles

time of travelling  (t)= 48 minutes

Step 3

The time in miutes is conve...
