A vehicle’s velocity (in feet per second) was measured every 5 seconds around a race track and the data is as follows:
Use 6 rectangles to estimate the total distance traveled by the car during these 30 seconds by averaging the answer from using the right endpoints and the left endpoints.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
See attached for picture.
Total distance traveled:
(Area of A + B + C + D + E + F) / 2
= (73+111+140+188+200+220) x 5 / 2
= 2330 ft.
would 2330ft be the average of both the rightend and leftend points?
Yes. that is why we need the " /2 " in the equation.
