A bicyclist pedals along a straight road with velocity, v, given in the figure below. She starts 3 miles from a lake; positive velocities take her away from the lake and negative velocities take her toward the lake. http://i.imgur.com/lhJQd.png Approximately how far away is she at this time? Give a best estimate.

The square is 10mph time is 1 h So the result is 10 miles for each square

if you want to make it more complicated, then just roughly estimate how much of a square it is.
