(c) Near A. the tangent lines are becoming steeper as m increases, so the velocity was increasing, so the car was speeding up. Near B. the tangent lines are becoming less steep. so the car was slowing down. The steepest tangent near 0 is the one at C', so at C the car had just ﬁnished speeding up, and was about to start slowing (d) Between D and E. the slope of the tangent is 0, so the car did not move during that time. ...

### 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.
