1-37.

A car travels at a rate of

Sketch a velocity graph and label the axes with the correct units.

Shade the area under the curve for

. What does this area represent? The area represents distance traveled (or displacement) between

and.What are the units of the area? Explain how you know.

The shape is a trapezoid.

baseand base are vertical, so they represent velocity

Height is horizontal, so it represents time, in hours. Evaluate the area of a trapezoid. Simplify the units.Compute the distance traveled for
