An eagle is hunting a bird in flight. The eagle begins its descent from a height of 74m. The eagle reaches its prey at a height of 3m. This situation can be modelled using the formula: 74=3+6t.
t represents the time in seconds, but i'm not sure what 6 represents.

distance = rate * time
6 is the rate (or speed)in meters/second
