Q:
# Harvey rides his bike at an average speed of 12 miles per hour. In other words, he rides 12 miles in 1 hour, 24 miles in 2 hours, and so on. Let h be the number of hours he rides and d be the distance he traveled. Write an equation for the relationship between distance and time in point-slope form.

A:

Answer:Step-by-step explanation:Harvey rides his bike at an average speed of 12 miles in 1 hour, 24 miles in 2 hours, and so on. Let h be the number of hours he rides and d be distance traveled. Write the equation for the relationship between distance and time in point-slope form.----You have three points relating time and distance:(1,12),(2,24),(3,36)-----The slope for your equation would be (24-12)/(2-1) = 12/1 = 12 -------------------------------The intercept is the distance you would travel in no time; that would be zero.---------------------------------The equation is: distance = 12(time)d = 12t
