A cyclist maintains a constant velocity of 5.9 m/s headed away from point A. At some initial time, the cyclist is 242 m from point A.

What will be his position from point A after that time?

  1. His speed is 5.9m/s
    Every second he gets 5.9m farther away.

    We start measuring time when he's 242m away.

    So, after t seconds, he's 242 + 5.9t meters away from A.
