Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hi, I think it is as follows: If d= distance(m), and k= constant, and t = time (sec) Using the info above, it is true that d=kt^2 (where ^2 means squared) Initially, using the figures above, 867 = k x 17^2 = k x 289 Therefore k = 3. So if t = 4, you have d = 3 x 4^2 = 3 x 16 = 48m. Hope this helps :D
