Link to my problem it's the 3rd page number 20. Reasoning!:) thanks! http://www.miamiartscharter.net/ourpages/auto/2012/12/11/50556382/Alg%20I%20Section%204%20Problems.pdf 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

so you weren't able to get started?

  • anonymous
^^ I drew out the graph but it doesn't make sense @jim_thompson5910
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
can you describe what you drew?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I 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
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
which person is on the escalator other than person C?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I haven't wrote any info yet😖 could you plz kinda help me out? Haha
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
it's given in the problem
anonymous
  • anonymous
What do you mean?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
which person is on the escalator other than person C? it's given in the problem
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
is it person A? or person B?
anonymous
  • anonymous
B?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
hopefully that's not a guess do you see how they say it in the instructions?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Ohh okay yeah I see it
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what do you notice about the lines A and B?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well line A is longer and B is shorter. B is pointing a bit up
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
what about their slopes?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Their slopes are like straight and some curved
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
which is the steeper line
anonymous
  • anonymous
Steeper line would be line A
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you sure?
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
think of a hill or mountain
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay then line B
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
do 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
  • anonymous
It would be hard to climb because an is steeper
anonymous
  • anonymous
Because B is steeper
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
yeah think of it like a ramp
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
steeper line = larger slope
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay now that makes a bit more sense
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
since B is steeper, it has a larger slope, which basically means B is moving faster than A
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
B covers more distance in a shorter amount of time
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay! Makes sense
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thank you so much!!:)
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
B is going faster because B is walking up the escalator so would C go faster than B? or slower than B? and why?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Faster because the lines are Steep
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
is C on the stairs? or on the escalator?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Escalator
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
is C walking or standing still?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Standing still
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so 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
jim_thompson5910

|dw:1442286549277:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
|dw:1442286577016:dw|
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
so 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
  • anonymous
C would be in the middle but longer and steeper
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
click on the pencil of my drawing you'll be able to draw on it
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay! Cool
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait I don't see a pencil sorry I'm new to this website
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
on the drawing I did
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
do you see a pencil in the upper right corner?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I don't
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
you should see this (see attached image)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay well it won't let me click on the pencil
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
are you on mobile or tablet?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Mobile
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
that might explain it I'm on a desktop
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
anyways, C would be any line that is in between A and B, like this |dw:1442287136060:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh okay I got it
jim_thompson5910
  • jim_thompson5910
C 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)

Oh okay thank u so much!!
