Your teacher will give you further directions as to how to submit your work. You may be asked to upload the document, e-mail it to your teacher, or hand in a hard copy. Before you begin, recall the formula that relates distance, rate, and time. The distance formula is given by d = rt , where: d represents distance. Common units are miles or feet. t represents time. Common units are hours or seconds. r represents rate or velocity. Common units are miles per hour or feet per second. You can calculate distance by finding the product of an average rate of an object traveling and the duration of time for which it travels. Remember, units for distance and time must agree with the units for rate. Now let’s get started! Step 1: Calculating distance at maximum speed If the cheetah sprinted at maximum speed, how far would the cheetah have traveled? 70 miles an hour. Copyright© E2020, Inc. 2011
Student Guide (continued) a.Set up an equation to represent the distance the cheetah covered in terms of tminutes running at maximum speed. Remember, units of distance and time must agree. Use the conversion information from the warm-up to write a rate in miles per minute. b.Let t= 10 and solve for the distance the cheetah covered in 10 minutes. Step 2: Calculating distance using varied speeds Suppose the cheetah sprinted at maximum speed for 8 minutes and then slowed to 40 mph for the next 8minutes. a.How far would the cheetah have traveled in the first 8 minutes? Show how you arrived at your answer.
