kenneth morris period 1 said...

1. 45.8 mph
2. 46.6 mph
3. 25 mph for 275 mi and 75 mph for 275 mi
4a. last two
4b. hour 5
4c. at around 6 hours because at this time the graph has the highest slope

Fletcher said...

(period 2)

1.) 55mph
2.) 57.6mph
3.) it was going 25mph for 275 miles due to rail construction or something, then sped up to 75 mph for 275 miles.
4.a) the last two hours
b) hour 5 (~4:45)
c) wherever the highest slope is, but around the middle, I'd say, because at both ends of the graph, the slope is decreasing because the train is either speeding up or slowing down

Nadia Gronkowski said...

1. 55 mph
2. (About) 58 mph
3. (This one was really fun!)
40 mph for 1.5 hours
60 mph for 1.5 hours
and 50 mph for 8.2 hours (8 hours, 12 minutes- I think)

4a. The last two hours (I think...)
4b. Between hours 5 and 6
4c. 5.5 hours into the trip (I think...)

Ethan Fryer-Ressmeyer said...

1. 55mi/hr
2. 65.3mi/hr
3. For the first 5.5 hours the train went 60 mi/hr and went 330 miles while doing so. then the next 5.5 miles the train went 40 mi/hr and went 220 mi while doing so.
4a. last 2 hours
4b. from hours 5-6
4c. 5.5 because it is right after the graph increases the most in its slope and before it begins to decrease in its slope.

Christina Lin said...

1. 55 mph
2. About 58 mph
3. 40 mph for 5.5 hours, 220 miles
60 mph for 5.5 hours, 330 miles
11 hours and 550 miles
4a. last two hours
4b. Hour 5
4c. Between 5 and 6 hours

Jeannet Hernandez said...

1. 55 mph

2. 57.65 mph

3. The train traveled at 60 mph for 5.5 hours. Then, it starts to rain, so it (the train) slows down to 40 mph for the rest of the trip.

4a. The last two hours.
4b. 5-6
4c. 5.5 hours, because this is the point that is right at the middle of the curve.

Lloyd Gronkowski said...

1. 55mph
2. Approx. 57.65moh
3. 45mph, covering 450mi over 10 hours, and then one hour of HYPER-DRIVE, where the train covers the last 100mi in one hour, going 100mph.
4a. The last two
4b. Hours 4-5.
4c. About 5.5, it looks the steepest there.

David Szeto (1st) said...

1. 55 mph
2. ≈ 57.647 miles

Alejandra Resendiz said...

1. 55mph
2. 57.64 mph
3. The train left for Pennsylvania at 5AM. It took 550 miles to get there. For the first 5 hours, the speed of the train was constant at 50 mph. At 10AM , 250 miles were traveled. Then the train rode at 45 mph. By 12PM, the train slowed down again and was running at 30mph. At 2PM the train returned to the original speed of 50 mph. The train arrived at Pennsylvania at 5PM.
4a. The last two hours.
4b. Hours 5-6
4c. I would choose 5-5.5 hours because it is at the middle of the time elapsed and at the middle of the miles traveled. Perhaps because the train was gaining pace at this point because it was in the middle of the trip [not the end or the beginning].

Jarren Lewis said...

I AGREE WITH ALL CORECT ANSWERS ABOVE

Katie Rothas Period 3
1. 55mi/hr (550 miles in 10hrs.)
2. 57.6mi/hr (490 mi in 8.5 hrs)
3. Starts: 51mi/hr for 3hrs conductor slows down to 48mi/hr for 3hrs, then realizes that he is going to run late if he continues at this pace, so speeds up to 50mi/hr for the last 5hrs.
4a. Last 2hrs (50mi/hr)
4b. 4:30-5:30 (100mi/hr)
4c. 5:00 b/c it is in the middle of the hour in which the train was traveling the fastest. At 4:30 it began to speed up and as the train headed towards teh 5:30 marker it slowed its pace (look @ graph).

Nat Iosbaker, who WRULZ!, said...

1) 55mph
2) 49 mph

4a) last 2 hours
4b) 5-6 hours
4c) 5.5 hours at 300 miles because it goes the furthest distance in the least amount of time

3) For half the time, 5.5 hours, the train traveled 49 mph. When the train reached 269.5 miles, which is how far it would have gone at 49 mph for 5.5. hours, it speeds up to 51 mph because the conducter takes some speed up the train drugs (though this situation does not condone drug ussage of any sort) and the train spends the remaining 280.5 miles in peace and funkadelicaness.


Also everyone else is wrong because they're not Nat.

Areli Valencia said...

Areli Valencia
1. 55 mph
2. About 58 mph
3. The first five an a half hours the train is going at a speed of forty miles per hour and the next five and a half hours the train will go at sixty miles per hour. So the total distance would add up to 550 miles.
4.
A. The last two hours because it looks steeper than the first two hours.
B. 5-6 hours which I found to be an average speed of 80 mph during that interval.
C. Somewhere in between the fifth and sixth hour.

3. At the start of the trip the train went 50 mph. At 12:00 p.m, the train had to slowed down to 40 mph. After a while, the train speed up to 60 mph. Then twords the end of the trip the train slowed back down to 50 mph.
4. a. Last 2 hours
b. Between 5 and 6
c. At 5:30 becasue it is in-between the fastest point of the graph.

Vanessa Sanchez (pd. 2) said...

While looking at previous posts, I saw that most people have the same basic answer, but small differences occurred due to interpretations of the graph. My answers are:
1) At least 55 mph
2) 57.7 mph
3) 60 mph for 6 hours, 360 mi
38 mph for 5 hours, 190 mi
4) a) Last two hours
b) Between five and six hours
c) I would chose at t=5.5 h because I think between five and six hours the train goes the fastest and 5.5 is in between that time.

Rafael Perez said...

Quentin Sledge first period said...

Quentin Sledge period 1

1. 55 mi/hr
2. ~ 58 mi/hr
3. I said that the train was going 25mph for the first 275 miles because a train had been derailed earlier in the week due to faulty tracks, then it sped up to 75 mph for 275 miles for the rest of the trip
5. ~ 5-6
6. I would choose the instant where the slope if the graph is the steepest because the slope represents the rate at which the train is moving. So if the slope is high the train is moving very quickly

Venus Liang Period 1 said...

1) About 55mph

2) About 57.65mph, rounded to 58

3) Abida got on the train right on time at 5:00am. The train traveled 45mph for 4 hours traveling 180 miles from Cincinnati, Ohio. Then the train started to speed up traveling at about 61.7 mph for the rest of the ride there.

Conan Huang - Period 1 said...

Conan Huang - Period 1

1. 55 miles per hour

2. about 57.65 miles per hour

3. The train travels at 100 mph for the first hour. Then, a bunny jumps onto the tracks, the conducter is then forced to stop for the super cute bunny. The train contains magic brakes and engines that accelerate and decelerates in no time at all! Conan Huang then throws a bucket of carrots for the bunny to eat. After one hour total, the bunny teleports into Happy Land. The train then accelerates to 50 mph for the remaining distance which takes up 8 hours.

4a. Technically, the graph does not display an accurate representation, but it appears that the last two hours is faster than the first two hours.

b. Once again, simply by eyeing the graph, around hour 5 to hour 6.

c. About 5.5 hours, the line tangent to the curve appears to be steepest vertically.

EDITH PEREZ per. 3 said...

1) 550miles in 10hrs=55miles/hr
2)57.65miles/hr
3) The train went 35miles/hr for 5 hours then sped up to 60 miles/hr for the remaining 5 hrs.
4a)The train went faster in the last two hours because it went about 50miles/hr (100miles/2hrs=50miles/hr)
b)8-9
c)4 hours and a half because that was a period where the graph looked steeper meaning the train was accelerating.

Amanda said...

1) 55mph
2)About 58 mph
3)Go 45 mph for 2 hours, 60 mph for 1 hour, then 50 mph for the rest of the time.
4)
a. It was faster during the last 2 hours.
b)It's speed was the fastest between the 5th to sixth hour.
c)At about 6 because it's before the train starts to slow down and while it is speeding up.

David Kaplinsky said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.65 mph
3. well what i got was 20 mph from 5-7 am = 40 mile
and then it went 56.7 mph for the next 8 hours=510 miles, but i now see that they don't average to fifty, even though they still reach the destination in the same time frame.
4a. last two hours-50 mph vs. 40mph
b. between 5th-6th hours
c. I said at the 6th hour because this is the peak of the period with the fastest rate.

Rosie G. said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.65 mph
3. The train went 49 mph for the first 5.5 hours. Then the train went 51 mph for the next 5.5 hours. This way for each interval of 5.5 hours the average speed is 50 mph.
4.
A. The train went faster in the last two hours.
B. The train had the fastest average speed from hours 6-7.
C. I think at about 6.5 hours. The curve is there indicating an increase in speed that is not constant.

Weronika Leja said...

3rd Period

1.) 550/10= 55mph
2.) (550-60)/8.5= 57.65mph
3.) From 5am to 1030am, the train went at 60mph, traveling 330 miles. From 1030am to 3pm, it went at 40mph, traveling 220 miles for a total of 550 miles, and a 50mph average.
4.)
a.) last 2, steeper line
b.) from 5 to 6 hours
c.) 5.5 because it is inbetween 5 and 6 which was the fastest interval.

Amanda Buduris said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.65 mph
3. The train leaves the station at 5am traveling a speed of 60 mph for the first 5 hrs. Then it slowed to 40 mph for the rest of the 250 miles.
4a) They're almost appear the same but the last 2 hours seemed to have traveled more. The line is a bit more steep.
b) Probably 5th-6th. The line looks to be the most steep.
c) Probably around 5:30 because as I said in B, I thought 5th-6th was the fastest so before 5 hours, it's still picking up speed but after 6 hours, it seems to be slowing down. So somewhere in the middle of the 5th and 6th hour would probably be the fastest.

Hortencia said...

1. 55 mpH
2. approx: 58 mph

Tracy Mannion 4th period said...

1. 55mph
2. 57.6mph
3. The train's speed was 30mph. In 3 hours the train has gone 90 miles. 550m minus 90m =460m. 460m/8hrs=57.5mph
4a. In the last two hours. The line is steeper.
4b. 5/6 hours because that is where the line increased more.
4c. 5 because the line is steeper.

Amina Dreessen said...

1st period

1. 550 milles/ 10 hours = 55 miles/hour
2. 10-1.5=8.5 hours
550-60=490 miles
490 miles/8.5 hours= 58 miles/hour
3. For the first 5.5 hours, the train travels at 40 miles/hour, and travels 220 miles. For the second 5.5 hours, the train travels at 60 miles/hour, and goes the remaining 330 miles.
4. a. faster during the last two
b. from 6 to 7
c. About 5:30, because that seems to be when the line inclines the most steeply.
I don't have any questions. I think I got mostly the same answers as other people. Which means they're probably right. woohoo math!

jose "N4cH0" said...

1. 55 mph
2.57.65 mph
3.The train leaves the station traveling at a rate of 60 mph for the first hour. The next hour it travels for 40 hours. This cycle continues until the last hour, where the train travels at a rate of 50 mph.
4.a The last 2 hours because it appears more steep.
b. I thought it was 5 to 6 hrs, because the line look more steep than the rest.
c.Somewhere around the fifth and sixth hour of the trip would the highest speed be found because the highest rate of change was found in the 5th and 6th hour. Logically you would assume that the highest average or change would have the highest speed.

Miguel said...

1)55mph
2)57.6mph
3)The train travels on an average speed of 50mph but then came upon a herd of cows crossing causing the train to stop for 1 an hour after completing five hours of the trip to keep the trip under 11 hours the train must speed up to an average 60mph.
4)
A. FIRST
B. 6-7 hour period
C. 6 becuase there seems to be a
slight increase in the lines
curve at this point
indicating an increase

Do you agree with the answers already posted?

-yes they are similar to mine and seem correct

What questions do you have about HW4?

- Are my answers right?!

What questions do you have about your fellow students' answers?

-None really

What difficulties did you encounter with this homework?

-Number 4 was kind of tricky because I wasnt really sure about my answers but i just went by how the graph looked.

Maria said...

1. 55mph

2. About 58mph

3. My train 60mph for the first 2 hours due to less passengers/less stops and then decreases to 40mph for the next 3 hours(rush period), then back to 60mph for the next 3 hours, then 50mph for the next 2 hours, and then back to 40mph during the last 2 hours(rush period).

Hours 3-9, 50mph, 350 miles

4.)A. Last two hours

B.)between 5 and 6

C.)5.5 hours, the slope is the steepest at this point

I agree with most of the answers that others posted, they were similar to mine. I had alittle diffciculty with number 4 because I was just basing it off of what i estimated by looking at the graph.

Aaron said...

Aaron Steinbrecher 3rd Period

1. 5:00am- 3:00pm= 10hrs
550mi/10hrs= 55mph
2. 5:00am-6:30am= 1.5hrs
40mph for 60mi
6:30am- 3:00pm= 8.5hrs
490mi/8.5hrs= 57.6 mph
3.From 5:00am to 10:30pm, the train travels 220 miles at a speed of 40mph. After realizing it might be late, it speeds up to 60mph for the 330 miles left.
4. a. It was faster during the last two hours because the slope is steeper.
b. Between 5 and 6 hours.
c. 5.5 hours because the increase is largest between 5 and 6 hours.
I do agree with most of the answers posted. I think the most differentiating question was number 2, because some people computed differently than others.

Anonymous said...

1. 55 mph
2. 61.2 mph
3 The train traveled at 70 mph for280 miles for the first four hours. Then it slowed down a bit for the last six hours, traveling at 270 miles at a speed of 45 mph.
4 a) last two
b) from hours 5-6
c) At 8 hours because the points it's between hour 7, which is the starting to speed up, and hour 9, which is beginning to slow down because it is close to it's destination. So hour 8 is like the peak of the slope.

DJ Trois Shavers said...

1. 55mph

Jessica Bartucci said...

[Period 2]
1.) 55 miles/hour

2.)Approx. 57.65 miles/hour

3.)So the train travels at 50m/hr. for the first three hours (150 miles are covered). Then the train travels at 65mph for two hours (280 miles are covered). The last 270m will be covered at 54m/hr....Don't know whether or not I read the question correctly.

4.) a.The train traveled faster in the last two hours (approx. 75mph).
b. Hours 5-6 or 6-7 seem to show the train traveling the fastest.
c. At the 6th hour the graph begins to change instead of a small progression, the train seems to be covering more distance in a smaller amount of time.

3) I wasn't sure how to do this problem. I was confused.
4)a) the last two hours
b)5 to 6

Sandi Rodriguez said...

1) 55mph
2) needs to average 57.6mph
3) From 5:00am to 10:00am the train went 40mph, then from 10:00am to 3:00pm it went 60 mph.
4 a) last two hours
b) 5th hour
c) i would pick the point on the graph where the slope is the highest which would be the 6th hour.

Vanessa Hamilton said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.7 mph
3. 60 mph for the first 5 and 1/2 hours. 40 mph for the last 5 and 1/2 hours.
4a. The second half (60 mph) While the first half was a MERE 50 mph
b. 5-6 hours
c. The same answer as above. It is the "steepest" or has a greater slope. This means that the average slope is greater than any other time slot on the graph.

Dan S. said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.7 mph
3.
4a. It was the same speed at each end
4b. 4-5
4c.I would say hour 5 because that is right before the train starts to accelerate negatively. Actually I can't tell from this graph.

Mara Collins said...

1. 55 mph
2. 57.65 mph
3. The train goes 60 mph for 5 and a half hours and then goes 40 for another 5 and a half hours.
4. A. The last 2 hours
B. From 5-6
5. I would chose between 5&6 because the slope is the steepest

Ashley Serrano said...

1. 550 miles/ 10 hrs= 55mph
2. 4 miles * 1.5 hrs= 60 miles
550 miles- 60 miles=490 miles left to go
490 miles/ 8.5 hours=about 58 mph
3.The train traveled 60mph for 6 hours which was a distance of 360 miles. Then it traveled 40mph for 4.75 hours , which was a distance of 190 miles.
4. a.) The last two hours because the 1st hour: 50 m/ 2hr= 25mph while the last two hours: 450 miles/ 9.5 hrs= 47.4 mph
b.)Between 5 and 6 one hour period
c.)5.5 because it has the highest slope and you can tell by the graph also on how steep it is.

karolinapatino said...

1. 55mph
2. The train would have to average about 57.64 to be able to get there on time.
3. The train can travel 60mph for half the time and then slow down to 40mph for the rest of the time.
4. a. The first two hours the train was going traveled about 80mph, the last two hours it traveled about 100mph. If 80 miles is divided by 2 and so is 100, then it shows that the train was traveling faster the last two hours.
b. Judging by the graph the train was going fastest somewhere between the 5th and 6th hour.
