(a) 45 minutes

(b) 9:15

(c) 30 miles in 1/2 hour = 60 miles/hr

(d) The maximum speed is when the distance traveled divided by the time is the greatest. This occurs when the slope of the line is the steepest. We can see by the graph that this happens between 11:15 and 12:15.

(e) To find the average speed we take the total distance traveled, 200miles(100miles there and 100 miles back) and divide by the amount of time taken (3.5 hours). Dividing 200/3.5 gives us 57.1428miles/hr.
