    I have (30, 35) and (12, 20) so my function is R(t)=5/6t + 10...do I need to include 5 minute breaks somewhere

    Then I have to sketch a graph of total number T(t) of words that are typed as a function of time t during one typing cycle...I need several equations with different domains for over next 5 minutes...I'm stuck

    can the f(t) be piece wise?

    I would imagine bc I will have several line segments that make up a polynomial line graph

    | 35 ; t=[0,30] f(t) = | 0 ; t=(30,35) | 20 ; t=[35,47]

    I would say no. a graph can be disjoint, thre are no rules against that that I am aware of.

    for 35 mins the speed was constant, then dropped to 0 then picked up at 20 at the time intervals indicated is the best I can make out of the problem :)
