a. Suppose two animals are in a race. Choose the two animals and calculate the speed of each animal in yards per second. my answers:
Cheetah 70 mph
70 miles x 1 hour x 1760 yds = 34 yds/sec
1 hour 3600 sec 1 mile
Lion 50 Mph
50 mph x 1 hour x 1760 yds = 24 yds/sec
1 hour 3600 1 mile
b. Decide how much of a head start (in yards) the faster animal offers the slower animal. For each animal, write an equation relating distance from the starting line to time. Please help me write the equation, i don't know how. i think i need to use the form d=r*h but i don't know what numbers to plug in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Here is the answer to A: Pick two animals to be in a race and answer the following questions. a. Suppose two animals are in a race. Choose the two animals and calculate the speed of each animal in yards per second. Cheetah 70 mph 70 miles x 1 hour x 1760 yds = 34.2 yds/sec! AND B! Do you understand now? 1 hour 3600 sec 1 mile Fox 42 Mph 42 miles x 1 hour x 1760 yds = 20.5 yds/sec 1 hour 3600 1 mile b. Decide how much of a head start (in yards) the faster animal offers the slower animal. For each animal, write an equation relating distance from the starting line to time. (This is where I am having trouble.. these are my answers but they just doesn't seem right! I have to graph them and the graph seems weird.) Fox 348.5y=20.5x Cheetah y=34.2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the cheetah started at 0 yards at a speed of 34yd/sec and gave the lion a 10 second head start with the lion going at a speed of 24yd/sec. but how do i write two equations for this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Good, The proper way of doing this is by... Taking each speed of the animal and timsing it by the other speeds.... Thats one way

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well there you go, Fox 348.5y=20.5x Cheetah y=34.2x . Yea math is truly insane, anyway that is a two liner kind the one I gave... wait let me solve this on paper!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how long will it take the cheetah to overtake the lion? and how many yards from the starting line are the animals when the cheetah overtakes the lion?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok well for the lion it is 348.5y=20.5x Is what i got i think it is right... to find out how the cheetah to overtake the lion subtract the lion and cheetah. I dont know what you mean for question number 2
