Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if the distance is 5 you plug in 5 where Y goes then since its 5 miles for 1 second you plug in 1 where x goes

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Since you used nicely tidied units, and its a distance time graph it means that the slope is the speed.
