Example
A driver going down a straight highway is traveling 60 ft/s on
cruise control, when he begins accelerating at a rate of 5.2 ft/s2 .
The velocity of the car t seconds after he begins to accelerate is
given by
26
v = t + 60.

1 Interpret the meaning of the slope and y intercept in this
context. 2 Determine the velocity of the car after 9.4 seconds. 3 If the car is traveling at 100 ft/s, for how long did it
accelerate?...
