Calculation: The given function: d(x)={55x,if 0x265x20,if 2<x5
Use the second equation because 2<4<5.
d(x)=65x20
d(4)=65(4)20
d(4)=26020
d(4)=240
Therefore the distance travel in 4 hours is 240 miles.

For Questions 12, use the following. Scooters are often used in European and Asian cities because of their ability to negotiate crowded city streets. The number of scooters (in thousands) sold each year in India can be approximated by the function N=61.86t2237.43t+943.51 where f is the number of years since 1990. 1. Find the vertical intercept. What is the practical meaning of the vertical intercept in this situation? 2. Use a numerical method to find the year when the number of scooters sold reaches 1 million. (Note that 1 million is 1,000 thousand, so N=1000) Show three rows of the table you used to support your answer and write a clear answer to the problem.
