i was wondering if anyone could give me some help with this problem(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A bicyclist begins pedaling a bicycle from a complete stop. She accelerates at a constant rate until she is pedaling at 60 revolutions per minute, and then maintains this rate for the remainder of her journey. The bicyclist does not achieve a constant speed until she has been pedaling for 10 minutes. The bike is geared with a 2:1 ratio, meaning that the rear wheel of the bike turns one revolution for every two revolutions of the pedals. How far does the bike travel during a 30-minute duration?

i just need to know how to go about solving the problem and if you could include your answer that would help too.
