The graph below shows a crow flying along at a constant speed, carrying a ball. Suddenly, the crow drops the ball. The diagram shows the position of the crow and the ball at five points in time. According to the trend shown by the graph below, at what height was the ball most likely at 3.5 seconds? (2 points)

This question made no sense to me and I don't understand it.

A) approximately 58 m
B)approximately 39 m*******
C)approximately 50 m
D)approximately 30 m

  1. I'm assuming that graph show the position of the ball at times of 1,2,3,4,5,...
    The height at t=3.5 will be somewhere between the values at 3 and 4, right?

    so, ... how did you arrive at your selected answer?

  2. I get what i did wrong i was looking at the bird and i thought it was going left not right so it cannot be 39 m. SO it should be 58 m?
