4-12.

A car travels

How far did the car travel?

Draw a speed vs. time graph of the situation.

What is the area under your curve from

? How do your answers to part (a) and part (c) compare? Why?

distance = (rate)(time)

Added to graph, vertical segments from x axis to horizontal segments at x = 3, and x = 5, areas below horizontal segments are shaded.

They are the same because the area under the curve is the distance traveled.
