Q:
# A car leaving a stop sign accelerates constantly from a speed of 0 feet per second to reach a speed of 44 feet per second. The distance of the car from the stop sign, d d , in feet, at time t t , in seconds, can be found using the equation d=1.1 t 2 d=1.1t2 . What is the average speed of the car, in feet per second, between t=2 t=2 and t=5 t=5 ? 5.5 6.6 7.7 8.5

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Option C.Step-by-step explanation:The distance of the car from the stop sign, d , in feet, at time t , in seconds, can be found using the equation[tex]d=1.1t^2[/tex]The average rate of change of a function f(x) on [a,b] is[tex]m=\dfrac{f(b)-f(a)}{b-a}[/tex]We need to find the average speed of the car, in feet per second, between t=2 and t=5.At t=2,[tex]d=1.1(2)^2=4.4[/tex]At t=5,[tex]d=1.1(5)^2=27.5[/tex]The average speed of the car, in feet per second, between t=2 and t=5 is[tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{d(5)-d(2)}{5-2}[/tex][tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{27.5-4.4}{3}[/tex][tex]\text{Average speed}=\dfrac{23.1}{3}[/tex][tex]\text{Average speed}=7.7[/tex]The average speed of the car, in feet per second, between t=2 and t=5 is 7.7 feet per second.Therefore, the correct option is C.
