    Answer:

    The trucker was cited for speeding because his speed was above that of the speed limit of the toll road by 14.5mph

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Step 1

    We calculate the speed of the trucker

    Speed = Distance(miles)/Time(hours)

    Distance = 159 miles

    Time = 2 hours

    Speed = 159 miles/2 hours

    Speed = 79.5 miles per hour = 79.5 mph

    From the question, we are told that: that toll road has a speed limit of 65mph

    Step 2

    We calculate the difference

    = 79.5 mph – 65 mph

    = 14.5 mph

    Hence, the trucker was cited for speeding because his speed was above that of the speed limit of the toll road by 14.5mph
