Example of Graphing Equations:
Example:
By using the above figure, find out the distance traveled if the average speed is 20 mph and the time traveled is 40 minutes.
The line labeled A in Figure connects 20 mph and 40 minutes. It passes through 14.5 miles.
Therefore, the distance traveled is 14.5 miles.
By using the above figure, find out the time required to travel 31 miles at an average speed of 25 mph.
The line labeled B in Figure connects 31 miles and 25 mph. It passes through 70 minutes.
Therefore, the time required is 70 minutes.
