3-103.

The graph below records the distance a bicyclist travels from Oshkosh to a town

Describe the velocity of the bicyclist.

The velocity is the slope of a distance graph.

The velocity is always positive. The bicyclist accelerates between

andand then de accelerates betweenand. S/he is moving fastest at.What was the bike's average velocity

Approximate the bike's instantaneous velocity at

hours.IROC at a point

slope of the tangent line at that point.
