How can we convert a distance/time graph (that also contains a table of info) into velocity/time, using the two point method?

converting dt graph (and table) to velocity/time using two pointyou'll learn it afterward perhaps i see i am giving you graph of speed vs time if dt graph is straight line at an angle α with x axis then vt graph is a line parallel to x axis if dt graph is parabolic then vt graph is straight line at an angle θ with x axis

You need to know that velocity is the time rate of change of displacement/position. In graph form, it corresponds to the slope at a given point in the displacementtime graph. You should have enough here to answer the question. Note that you need to know the physical meaning of all of this. It is not enough to just know/memorize the equation without understanding what it means. Zz.
