Q:

A hiker follows a trail to the top of a mountain. The trail is 15 mi long. She hikes at a rate of 2.5 mph. Which sketch represents that situation?

Accepted Solution

A:
Answer:Graph 3 satisfy the slope condition of speed with Time 6 hours and Distance 15 miles Step-by-step explanation:Given as : The distance of trail is 15 milesThe Rate of hikes = 2.5 mphSo, Time taken  = TNow Time = [tex]\frac{Distance}{Speed}[/tex]Or,    Time = [tex]\frac{15}{2.5}[/tex]Or,     Time = 6 hours So, The graph Between Distance and Time is D = Speed × TimeOr, Speed is slope of the function∴ Graph 3 satisfy the slope condition of speed with Time 6 hours and Distance 15 miles  Answer
