white (taw933) – HW07 – ben-zvi – (55600) 1 This print-out should have 15 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points It took Anna From noon until 3 p.m. to drive From UT to her home 90 miles From Austin. AFter t hours oF driving her distance From Austin was given in miles by s ( t )=3 0 t 2 - 20 3 t 3 . (i) What was her average speed For the trip home? 1. average speed = 29 mph 2. average speed = 30 mph correct 3. average speed = 31 mph 4. average speed = 32 mph 5. average speed = 28 mph Explanation: Since Anna travelled 90 miles in 3 hours, her average speed = 30 mph . 002 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points (ii) Her instantaneous speed twice coincided with her average speed. At what time did it frst happen? 1. at 12:37 pm correct 2. at 12:47 pm 3. at 12:42 pm 4. at 2:21 pm 5. at 2:31 pm Explanation: Anna’s instantaneous speed at time t was was s ± ( t )=6 0 t - 20 t 2 , and this would coincide with her average speed when 60 t - 20 t 2 =3 0 , i.e. ,when t 2 - 3 t + 3 2 =0 . The quadratic Formula gives solutions t = 1 2 ± 3 ± 9 - 6 ² = ± 3 ± 1 2 3 ² 3 . Both solutions are positive, so we need only the smaller solution. But as a decimal ± 3 - 1 2 3 ² 3 0 . 633 . Consequently, Anna’s instantaneous speed frst coincided with her average speed For the trip at 12:37 pm . 003 10.0 points AstormsystemisintheCentralTexasarea and moving in a straight line through Austin. The Weather Service O±ce Forecasts that t hours aFter 12noon the the storm will be a distance oF s ( t )=2 4+2 t - t 2 miles From Austin. How Fast will the storm be moving at 4:00 pm and in what direction will it be moving? 1. storm speed = 8 mph, storm moving towards Austin. 2. storm speed = 6 mph, storm moving away From Austin. 3. storm speed =

white (taw933) – HW07 – ben-zvi – (55600) 2 4. storm speed = - 8mph , stormmov ing towards Austin. 5. storm speed = 8 mph, storm moving away from Austin. 6. storm speed = 6 mph, storm moving towards Austin. correct Explanation: Since s ( t )= - ( t +4)( t - 6) , the storm will pass through Austin at 6:00 pm. Now t hours after 12noon the velocity of the storm will be given by s ± ( t )=2 - 2 t.
