3-58.

Irvin measured both his location and velocity while he motorcycled; however, he forgot to label the data and thus mixed up the distance and velocity measurements. Hoping to straighten out the data, he created two graphs. Which graph below represents distance and which graph represents velocity? How do you know?

Think back to the Freeway Fatalities problem: 1-1. Recall that velocity is the slope of a distance/position graph, while distance is the area under a velocity graph.
