Question

Two vehicles start out traveling side by side along a straight road. Their position functions are given by s = f (t) and s = g(t), where s is measured in feet and t is measured in seconds. a. Which vehicle has traveled farther at t = 2 seconds? b. What is the approximate velocity of each vehicle at t = 3 seconds? c. Which vehicle is traveling faster at t = 4 seconds? d. What is true about the positions of the vehicles at t = 4 seconds?

Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 5(a) We read from the graph

$\begin{gather*} f(2) = 2 \text{ ft} \\ g(2) = 1 \text{ ft} \end{gather*}$

so we conclude that $\color{#4257b2}{the first vehicle has traveled farther}$ $\color{default}{}$ at $t = 2$ seconds.
