The Weather Service Office forecasts that t hours after 12noon the the storm will be a distance of s ( t ) = 10 + 3 t- t 2 miles from Austin. How fast will the storm be moving at 3:00 pm and in what direction will it be moving? 1. storm speed = 5 mph, storm moving towards Austin. 2. storm speed = 3 mph, storm moving towards Austin. correct 3. storm speed = 3 mph, storm moving away from Austin. 4. storm speed =- 5 mph, storm moving towards Austin. 5. storm speed =- 3 mph, storm moving towards Austin. 6. storm speed = 5 mph, storm moving away from Austin.

Thus at 3:00 pm, t = 3 = s (3) =- 3 . To interpret the negative sign, observe that the storm will not have reached Austin at 3:00 pm, and hence will be moving towards Austin at that time. Consequently, at 3:00 pm the storm will be moving towards Austin with storm speed = 3 mph ....
