Chart and Scenario

Phil goes on a jog every Monday. Phil goes at a constant rate for 25 minutes then he stops.


Phil is going on a jog. He is going at a constant rate of 300 ft per 5 minutes. He stops at 25 minutes or 1,500 ft.

Equation

t=time in minutes

d=distance in ft

d=60t


The graph is gradually increasing because as more of his time walking increases so does the distance he walked from the starting point.
