**Physics no part 4**

part 4 use absolute value of distance is 52 + 20 = 72
*February 9, 2016*

**Physics**

I assume that we do not do negative time so v is positive for 0<t<2 and for t >5 when t = 0, x = -30 when t = 2, x = 22 when t = 4, x = 2 so 28 from 0 to 4 (part 3)agree part 4 +52-20 = 32

**Physics**

dx/dt = 6 t^2 - 42 t + 60 = 6 (t^2 - 7 t + 10) = 6 (t-2)(t-5) negative from 2 to 5 (Not 3 to 5)

**Calculus**

c = cups/day p = pennies/cup dc/dp = -2/5 so c = -(2/5) p + constant when p = 50, c = 40 so 40 = -2*50/5 + constant constant = 60 and c = -(2/5) p + 60 now you can make that p = 5n if you choose where n is an integer number of nickels c = -2 n + 60
