2. Micheal started by learning how to spell the same number of words each day but then learned a greater number of words each day. Sketch a graph for Micheal's learning to spell words.

3.  George started by learning how to spell many words each day but then learned fewer and fewer words each day. Sketch a graph for George's learning to spell words.

4.  A person steadily increases his speed for some time, then he maintains the constant rate. Sketch a graph for the above situation.

5.  A person begins his ride slowly but then stops to talk with some friends. After a few minutes, he continues his ride, gradually increasing his speed. Sketch a graph for the above situation.

6.  A person  steadily increases his speed through most of his ride. Then the person A slows down as he nears some trees. Sketch a graph for the above situation.

## Sketching graphs for situations worksheet - Solution

Problem 1 :

Jacob learned how to spell the same number of words each day. Sketch a graph for Jacob's learning to spell words.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph given above shows a constant rate. This means,  Jacob learned how to spell the same number of words each day.

Problem 2 :

Micheal started by learning how to spell the same number of words each day but then learned a greater number of words each day. Sketch a graph for Micheal's learning to spell words.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph given above begins with a steep curve that gets more shallow. This means, Micheal started by learning how to spell the same number of words each day but then learned a greater number of words each day.

Problem 3 :

George started by learning how to spell many words each day but then learned fewer and fewer words each day. Sketch a graph for George's learning to spell words.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph given above begins with a steep curve that gets more shallow. This means, George started by learning how to spell many words each day but then learned fewer and fewer words each day.

Problem 4 :

A person steadily increases his speed for some time, then he maintains the constant rate.

Sketch a graph for the above situation.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph starts with a positive slope and slope becomes zero. This means, the person steadily increases his speed for some time, then he maintains the constant rate.

Problem 5 :

A person begins his ride slowly but then stops to talk with some friends. After a few minutes, he continues his ride, gradually increasing his speed.

Sketch a graph for the above situation.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph starts with a positive slope, then the slope becomes negative, zero and positive. This means, the person begins his ride slowly but then stops to talk with some friends. After a few minutes, he continues his ride, gradually increasing his speed.

Problem 6 :

A person  steadily increases his speed through most of his ride. Then the person A slows down as he nears some trees.

Sketch a graph for the above situation.

Solution :

Explanation :

The graph given above starts with a positive slope, then the slope becomes negative. This means, the person  steadily increases his speed through most of his ride. Then the person A slows down as he nears some trees.
