jason leaves detroit at 2 pm at a constant speed. he passes ann arbor, 40 mi. from detroit, at 2:50 pm.
express the distance traveled in terms of time elapsed.
i know d=rt. t=50 min. d=40 mi. does that mean the r= 4/5 mi/min. ? but how would u get the answer from there?
I think they want d=(4/5)t, but I'm not sure. You could put t on the xaxis and d on the yaxis and have a line with slope 4/5 which corresponds to the rate. Aside from that, the question is not clearly stated in my opinion.

why is the total distance traveled by a mass traveling in a circle of radius R during n revolutions =2piRn. The average speed is the distance traveled divided by the elapsed time, so: v=2piRn/delta T, where delta T is the elapsed time.
