##### Reference no: EM13672804

A horse ran the Kentucky Derby with times of 25.2 s, 24.0 s, 23.8s, and 23.0 s for the quarter mile. (a) Discover his average speed through each quarter-mile segment. (b) Assuming that the horses instantaneous speed at the finish line was the same as his average speed during the final quarter mile, discover his average acceleration for the entire race.
