The velocity of a car (in feet per second) is given by . How long does it take for the car to travel a total of ft?

1. Graph.
2. Distance is area under a velocity curve.
3. When will the area under the curve ft?

First quadrant, x axis labeled seconds, scaled in fives from 0 to 20, y axis labeled feet per second, scaled in fives from 0 to 35, continuous linear piecewise, starting at (0, comma 10), turning up at (5, comma 10), passing through (15, comma 30), vertical segment from (5, comma 10), to x axis, shaded region below graph.
