So I understand how to draw velocity-time graph "from" distance graph and acceleration-time graph "from" velocity-time (basically the slope)

But I don't understand how to draw distance-time from velocity-time graph and velocity-time graph from distance-time graph.

Please help! how would I do that?

Distance travelled in a particular time interval is the area under the velocity-time graph between those two times.
If the graph is a straight line (uniform or zero acceleration) then it's a simple matter.
Velocity is the area under the acceleration-time graph.
