A particle moves along the x-axis. The velocity of the particle at time t is $6t - t^2$.

What is the total distance traveled by the particle from time $t = 0$ to $t = 3$

ok we are given $v(t)$ so we do not have to derive it from a(t) since the initial $t=0$ we just plug in the $t=3$ into $v(t)$ so

$6(3) - (3)^2=18-9=9$.

I thot I might of posted this earlier but I could not find it
