  1. What was Ben doing between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 a.m.?

A first quadrant graph, with horizontal axis labeled, Time, and Vertical axis labeled, Distance from Home in miles. The continuous graph rises from the point (7, a, m, comma 0), to the point (8 , a, m, comma 2), then runs horizontal to (8.5, a, m, comma 2), It then rises to the point (9, a, m, comma 4), then runs horizontal to (2.5, p, m, comma 4), and then falls to the point (3, p, m, comma 0).
