Question

The graph shows the relationship between the number of hours that Michelle has been driving and the distance that she has left to travel to get to her destination.

A graph on a coordinate plane titled Distance Remaining Over Time. The x-axis is labeled time (in hours), numbered 1 to 8, and the y-axis is labeled miles to destination, numbered 50 to 400. A straight line with a negative slope starts at point (0, 350) and ends at point (7, 0).

Which statement is true?

It took Michelle 6 hours to complete the trip.
For each hour that Michelle drove, she traveled an additional 50 miles.
In the first 6 hours, Michelle had traveled a total of 50 miles.
In the first 3 hours, Michelle had traveled a total of 200 mile\

    Answer:

    (b) For each hour that Michelle drove, she traveled an additional 50 miles.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given

    (x_1,y_1) = (0,350) —- start

    (x_2,y_2) = (7,0) — end

    Required

    Which is true

    (a): Journey = 6 hours

    This is false, because:

    x = x_2 - x_1

    x = 7-0

    x = 7 —- 7 hours

    (b): The average rate is 50 miles per hour

    To do this, we calculate the slope (m) using:

    m = \frac{y_2 -y_1}{x_2- x_1}

    m = \frac{0 - 350}{7-0}

    m = -\frac{350}{7}

    m = -50

    This means that the rate is 50 miles driven in 1 hour.

    (b) is correct

    Others are incorrect
