A. 0 is less than t is less than 1/2
B. t is greater than 0
C. t is greater than 1
D. 0 is less than t is less than 1/2, t is greater than 1
E. Never

b) the acceleration, a is increasing when
A. t is greater than 1
B. t is greater than 0.5
C. t is less than 0.211 or t is greater than .789
D. 0 is less than t is less than 0.5
E. 0 is less than t is less than 1

1. moving right when s is increasing. That is, when ds/dt > 0

a is increasing when da/dt is positive. That is,

48t-24 > 0
t > 2
