My Word Problem

›The lion is moving at a constant pace of 5 meters per second. It comes to a stop at 60 meters. Below is a line graph and variables demonstrating this situation.

Independent Variables

  • An independent variable is a variable not dependent on another variable
  • The independent variable in my solution is the TIME IN SECONDS

Dependent Variable

  • A dependent variable is a variable whose value depends on that of another.
  • The dependent in my solution is the DISTANCE IN METERS which is dependent on the time in hours
  • A constant is a variable that will remain the same throughout the problem.

The equation and explaination of variables

T=time in seconds
M=distance in meters


The graph shows that it is increasing because as time passes the lion is moving farther away from its den
