Question the graph at the right shows the vertical distance traveled as person A walks up a set of stairs and person B walks up on an escalator next to the stairs.!copy the graph. then draw a line that could represent the vertical distance traveled as Person C rides the escalator standing still. explain your reasoning

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I drew what it told me. I drew and copied the graph and drew out the lines. I also put distance and time on it and idk what to do next😖 @jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what do you notice about the lines A and B?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well line A is longer and B is shorter. B is pointing a bit up

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what about their slopes?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Their slopes are like straight and some curved

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1which is the steeper line

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Steeper line would be line A

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1think of a hill or mountain

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you see how B is steeper? how if you tried to walk up it, it would be harder to climb compared to line A?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It would be hard to climb because an is steeper

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Because B is steeper

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yeah think of it like a ramp

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1steeper line = larger slope

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh okay now that makes a bit more sense

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since B is steeper, it has a larger slope, which basically means B is moving faster than A

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1B covers more distance in a shorter amount of time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1B is going faster because B is walking up the escalator so would C go faster than B? or slower than B? and why?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Faster because the lines are Steep

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is C on the stairs? or on the escalator?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is C walking or standing still?

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so C will be moving slower than B but faster than A this is assuming that the escalator is moving relatively fast and A is walking up the stairs slowly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we'd expect C to be somewhere in the middle in terms of slope can you draw for me what line C could look like?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0C would be in the middle but longer and steeper

jim_thompson5910

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1anyways, C would be any line that is in between A and B, like this dw:1442287136060:dw

jim_thompson5910
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1C is steeper than A, which means C is faster than A (because C is on an escalator and A is on the stairs) B is steeper than C, so B is faster than C (because B is walking while C is still)
