Time remaining:
Canoe trip project: hint: use the formula distance = rate x time

 Algebra Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

mike likes to canoe. he can paddle 4 miles per hour. he is planning a river trip that will take him to a destination 6 miles upstream (that is, against the current). the speed of the current will work against the speed that he can paddle.

find the vertical intercept of t(s) ? what does this point represent in terms of mike's canoe trip?

at what value of does the graph have a vertical asymptote? explain why this makes sense in this situation

distance = rate * time

in current mike can paddle 4 miles per hour i.e. rate

as stream flow the speed of mike will decrease we have to minus that from mike current speed

4 - speed of flow

distance = 6 = 4 - speed of flow * time

6/ time = 4 - speed of flow

let's suppose the river flow is 2 miles per hour

6 / time = 2

6/2 = time

3 hour = time

time = 3 hour depending on this result you can get some idea.

If you have question then ask.

Thanks
