18. continued (b) x 5 0, 1, 4 19. A graph of the derivative data is shown. [0, 10] by[ 2 10, 80] (a) The derivative represents the speed of the skier. (b) Since the distances are given in feet and the times are given in seconds, the units are feet per second. (c) The graph appears to be approximately linear and passes through (0, 0) and (9.5, 63.2), so the slope is } 6 9 3 . . 5 2 2 2 0 0 } < 6.65. The equation of the derivative is approximately D 5 6.65 t . 20. (a) [ 2 0.5, 4] by [700, 1700] (b) A graph of the derivative data is shown. [0, 3.24] by [ 2 800, 100] (c) Since the elevation y is given in feet and the distance x down river is given in miles, the units of the gradiant are feet per mile. (d) Since the elevation y is given in feet and the distance x downriver is given in miles, the units of the distance } d d y x } are feet per mile. (e) Look for the steepest part of the curve. This is where the elevation is dropping most rapidly, and therefore the most likely location for significant “rapids.” (f)
