Part A: What does the xintercept of the function for car 1 represent? (2 points)
Part B: What does the yintercept of the function for car 2 represent? (2 points)
Part C: What is the domain of the functions for car 1 and car 2? (2 points)
Part D: What is the average rate of change from x = 20 to x = 30 for the function representing the motion for car 2? What does the value of this average rate of change represent? (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So about c i dont understand what domain (x) values they want

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The domain is the possible values of the horizontal (time) axis. From the diagram what do you think they are? Note that you have to consider both Car A and Car B together.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2oopps sorry I think they want a domain for Car A and another for Car B.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Thats the correct domain for car B what about Car A?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0could you give me the domain for car b and i figure it out for car a?

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got it so for A the domain would be [0,60)

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2[0 , +INF) is domain for car B

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes thats right for A

MeowLover17
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes as i said earlier so the domain for car A is [0,60)

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no 60 is INCLUDED in the Domain so it is [0,60]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2square bracket after the 60

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay cool so for part C Part C: The domain for Car A would be [0,60) and for Car B the domain is [0,+INF)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh sorry i mean [0,60]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0And you provided me with the answers for a and b right?

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So all i need is D please explain it cause i dont understand it what so ever

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the average rate of change = average speed of Car 2 during the period 20 to 30 minutes

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and this is (4034) / (3020) kms / minute

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella Could you provide me with the answer im hopeless

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2what is 40  34 ? and 30  20 ? i'm sure you can do that

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.04034= 6 and 3020 = 10

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do i do with theese numbers?

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right so speed = 6 / 10 = 0.6 kms/minute

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry i didnt provide you with this char Time (in minutes) x 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 Car 1 (in km) y 60 50 40 30 20 10 0 Car 2 (in km) y 60 49.02438 40.05648 32.72904 26.742 21.8502 17.85318

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this value represents the car's average speed between times 20 and 30 minutes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I hope this chart does not change our answers

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So my answer for Part D would be Part D: The average rate of change is speed = 6 / 10 = 0.6 kms/minute, and this represents the car's average speed between times 20 and 30 minutes

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella Is that right

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the speed of car B will be different as i just read the values off the graph

MeowLover17
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay so my second part of the answer is right but now i need to figure out the speed using the chart?

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2speed = (40.05648  32.72904) / 10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So .732744 my average rate of change??

MeowLover17

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so my Anser for part D is

MeowLover17
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The average rate of change is 0.732744 kms/minutes and this represents the car's average speed between times 20 and 30 minutes.
