She starts out five kilometers from the lake and positive velocities take her toward the lake (negative velocities take her away from the lake). The vertical lines on the graph are at 10 minute (1/6 hour) intervals. What can you determine about her distance from the lake at various times (be sure to explain how ou Know your answers)?
