of 10 m/s for 3 seconds and then travels for 2 seconds at a constant speed of 5 meters per second in the same direction. Calculate the total distance traveled.

Thanks!

rate * time = distance.

so in your case, it would simply be 10 (m/s) * 3 (s)= 30 m (note the units come out to meters)

Edit: this is way to simple a problem to do it all for him. Let the poster think for himself.

He's probably upset you didn't use an integral to solve the problem...Integral said:Edit: this is way to simple a problem to do it all for him. Let the poster think for himself.
