 Question 611365: a. Suppose two animals are in a race. Choose the two animals and calculate the speed of each animal in yards per second. b. Decide how much of a head start (in yards) the faster animal offers the slower animal. For each animal, write an equation relating distance from the starting line to time. c. Graph the two equations on the same coordinate plane d. How long will it take the faster animal to overtake the slower animal? How many yards from the starting line are the animals when the faster animal overtakes the slower animal? e. Reduce the head start by half and repeat parts c and d. So I did a and I picked an Ostrich 45 mph and a lion 50 mph. I converted them and got 22 yards per second for the ostrich and 24.44 yards per second for the lion. The rest of the questions have me confused. Please tell me how to do these and provide an explanation I'm really stuck on this and it's due in two days.
