Multiplechoice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A tank holds 1000 gallons of water, which drains from the bottom of the tank in half an hour. The values in the table t (min) 5 10 15 20 25 30 V (gal) 654 430 243 103 22 show the volume, V ( t ), of water remaining in the tank (in gallons) after t minutes. If P is the point (15 , V (15)) on the graph of V as a function of time t , find the slope of the secant line P Q when Q = (25 , V (25)). 1. slope = 22 . 1 correct 2. slope = 41 . 1 3. slope = 18 . 7 4. slope = 14 5. slope = 44 . 2 Explanation: When P = (15 , V (15)) , Q = (25 , V (25)) the slope of the secant line P Q is given by rise run = V (25) V (15) 25 15 . From the table of values, therefore, we see that slope = 22 243 25 15 = 22 . 1 . keywords: Stewart5e, slope, table of values, 002 (part 1 of 1) 10 points The position of a car as a function of time is given by the values in table t (seconds) 1 2 3 4 5 s (feet) 16 22 34 50 56 Find the average velocity for the time period beginning when t = 3 and lasting 2 seconds. 1. average vel. = 10 feet/sec 2. average vel. = 12 feet/sec 3. average vel. = 9 feet/sec 4. average vel. = 8 feet/sec 5. average vel. = 11 feet/sec correct Explanation: Average velocity between times t = 3 and t = 3 + h is given by s (3 + h ) s (3) h . When h = 2, therefore, s (3 + 2) s (3) 2 = 56 34 2 . Consequently, over the time interval from t = 3 to t = 5 the car has average velocity = 11 ft/sec . keywords: Stewart5e, average velocity, table of values, 003 (part 1 of 1) 10 points A car first speeds up, but then slows down. Sketch a graph of the position of the car as a function of time.

Thus of the graphs, only time position has the given properties.
