3-115.

The graph below shows the distance from a fixed point traveled by a toy car. Use the graph to sketch the velocity of the car.

Notice that shortly into the car's journey, it changed directions and started moving back towards its starting position. How will this be reflected on a velocity graph?

A steep negative slope on a distance graph will be plotted as a very low -value on a velocity graph. A steep positive slope on a distance graph will be plotted as a very high

*-value on a velocity graph. No slope on a distance graph will be plotted on the*

*-axis of the velocity graph.*
