Question description

Fair Race UNIT NAME: FUNCTIONS Directions: Follow the instructions below to design a fair race for the new video game Animal Tracks. 1. Choose two animals with different speeds. You can choose from the chart that starts at the bottom of this page or do research to choose your own. 2. Design a fair race in which the two animals have an equal chance of winning if they race at their top speed. Here are a few tips for your design: a. The race is fair if the two animals could finish the race in the same amount of time. b. You can give the slower animal a shorter distance to race. c. Since this is a video game, the race does not need to be realistic—it can be any length, and the animals can run at a constant speed. 3. Write a system of two linear equations showing the distance each animal can travel to model the fair race. Be sure to define all variables. 4. Graph the system to prove that the two animals have an equal chance of winning the race. Explain how the graph proves the race is fair. Your equations, graph, and explanation for your race design will be submitted as your portfolio assessment.
