Help w/Word Prob: LAW ENFORCEMENT A police accident investigator can use the formula s=2√5l to estimate the speed=s of a car in miles per hour based on the length=l in feet of the skid marks it left. How fast was a car traveling that left skid marks 120 feet long?

    s(L)=2√(5L)
    Substitute L=120 in above equation to get:
    s(120)=2√(5(120))
    =2√(600)
    =2*24.5
    =49 mph
