Ok this is the graph, how fast is the car going from AB and how fast is the car going from BC?

Speed =Distance / time?

distance = rate x time

and i cant see any specific value on the graph

Are you supposed to answer in variable terms?

I know, thats the problem Im having... and maybe variables?

the distance covered from B to C is what? ignore the time part, how much does the distance change?

Well If I was to put up markers, about 2/3 as much as AB... I really am uninformed in this topic...

the orientation of the chart might be confusing dw:1351868677072:dw

how fast do you have to be going to not move?

:) so at least from B to C, the speed is zero

But in AB your distance variable is going up right?

correct, you are changing your distance from A to B by constant rate, and if we were able to have some points of reference we would be able to determine the speed by finding the slope of the line from A to B

are the point values for A and B given in a different part of the problem set?

Uh no, that graph is the only information ive been given
 one year ago

ThatsmeBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
Other than the problems I typed
 one year ago

amistre64Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
then the only thing we can really deduce is that the speed from A to B is greater than zero :)

Alrighty then=) ">0" will have to do=)
