Example 1

When Adam goes on a run, he typically averages a speed of 6 mph. The following graph shows how many miles he travels depending on how long he runs. Describe the graph’s slope and explain what this reveals about Adam’s running. Then describe the domain and explain why it is limited.
  1. Describe the slope of the line.
  2. Explain what the slope of the line reveals about Adam’s running.
  3. Describe the domain.
  4. Explain why the domain is limited.
