Extra Tip! Notice that we added the labels feet/second to our answer. Why does this make sense?? The question tells us that P(t) represents feet and that t is equal to seconds. Another way to look at this question when applying it to the slope formula is to realize that we are finding the change of feet divided by the change of seconds. ____________________________________________________________________________________
