A car travels
How far did the car travel?
Draw a speed vs. time graph of the situation.
What is the area under your curve from
How do your answers to part (a) and part (c) compare? Why?
distance = (rate)(time)
Added to graph, vertical segments from x axis to horizontal segments at x = 3, and x = 5, areas below horizontal segments are shaded.
They are the same because the area under the curve is the distance traveled.
