(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An object moves in a straight line with velocity v = 6t-3t^2, where v is measured in metres per second.

a) how far does the object move in the first sec?

b) how far does the object move in the first two seconds?

c) the object is back where it started when t=3. how far did it travel to get there?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

the only bit i got was the anti derivative s=3t^2-t^3+c

help is requested :D
