Module 2: Investlgation Constant Rate of Change &Proportionality Precalculus A tortoise and hare are competing in a 1600-meter race. The arrogant hare decides to let the tortoise have a 950-meter head start. When the starting gun is fired, the hare begins running at a constant speed of 9.5 meters per second and the tortoise begins crawling at constant speed of 4 meters per second. a. 6. Illustrate the situation with a diagram, and then define a formula to determine the varying distance between the tortoise and the hare in terms of the number of seconds since the start gun was fired. Be sure to define your variables before trying to write the formula. Construct a graph to represent the varying distance between the tortoise and hare in terms of the number of seconds since the start gun was fired. b. Who finishes the race first, the tortoise or the hare? How long does it take each animal to complete the race? Make sure you can justify your answers. c. 7. A 17-inch candle is lit and burns at a constant rate of 1.8 inches per hour. Let / represent the number of hours since the candle started burning a.
