The position of a car is given by the values below.

Seconds | Feet

1 | 10

2 | 32

3 | 70

4 | 119

5 | 178

Find the average velocity for the time period beginning when t=2 and lasting

(a) 3 seconds

(b) 2 seconds

(c) 1 second

2. Relevant equations

There were no equations provided

3. The attempt at a solution

i usually have an equation to go by, but i do not in this case.

all attempts to make an equation out of the data have failed.

i think it is an exponential curve, but i can find the exact formula.

if anyone could stear me in the direction so i can figure this problem out.

i want to know what i'm doing, so do not give me the answer but please someone point me in some productive direction.

would i just input the numbers in the slope equation?

M=

y-y1

----

x-x1

i have the x and y already.

that seems too easy.
