    Help! plz what motion is occuring when the slope of a distance vs. time graph is zero

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    slope of a distance vs. time graps is zero and constant and changeing
    slope of a velocity vs. time graph is zero and constant
    what types of distances are there?
    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Well I assume when you learned early algebra, you learned that slope = change of y / change of x. Given that, what is the slope of a distance vs time graph equivalent to? (and what about velocity vs time?)

    there is no motion. it means that the the object is standing still.
