Problem Solving Exercise 1. Tiffany, who is opening in a new Broadway show, has some limo trouble in the city. With only 8.0 minutes until curtain time, she hails a cab and they speed off to the theater down a 1000.-m-long one-way street at a speed of 25 m/s. At the end of the street the cab driver waits at a traffic light for 1.5 min and then turns north onto a 1700.-m-long traffic-filled avenue on which he is able to travel at a speed of only 10.0 m/s. Finally, this brings them to the theater. a) Does Tiffany arrive before the theater lights dim? b) Draw a distance vs. time graph of the situation. 2.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
