ALGEBRA HELP #2

Malia is observing the velocity of a cyclist at different times. After two hours, the velocity of the cyclist is 15 km/h. After five hours, the velocity of the cyclist is 12 km/h.

Part A: Write an equation in two variables in the standard form that can be used to describe the velocity of the cyclist at different times. Show your work and define the variables used. (5 points)

Part B: How can you graph the equations obtained in Part A for the first 12 hours? (5 points)

  1. A. V = Vo + a*t.

    V = The velocity in km/h at any time where t is in hours.

    a is the acceleration in km/h^2.
