Suppose a scooter travels at a velocity of v(t)= 8t meters/hour. Then the TOTAL distance traveled by the scooter over the first 2 hours is?

so distance = 4t^2 + c

when t=0, d=0, (hasn't gone anywhere yet)

so c=0

distance = 4t^2

so in 2 hours

distance = 4(2^2) = 16 m

(silly question, how can the speed keep increasing?

And it took 2 hours to go 16 m?
