Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A 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.
