#### Answer:

Here's what's going on here.

#### Explanation:

That's just the duration of the motion expressed in *seconds*.

#"1 min = 60 s"#

so

#10 cancel("min") * "60 s"/(1cancel("min")) = "600 s"#

Now, notice that in **total distance** of

#d = v * t#

#d = "15 m/"cancel("s") * 600cancel("s") = "9000 m"#

Assuming that this car is moving along the **origin** of the axis, the initial position of the car will be at *left* of the origin and moving to the right.

The car will travel

#"initial position " stackrel(color(white)(acolor(blue)("200 m")aaa))(->)" town square " stackrel(color(white)(acolor(blue)("8800 m")aaa))(->) " final position"#

Using the **not** to scale!

#color(white)(aaaaaa)"start"color(white)(aaa)"town square"color(white)(aaaaaaaaaaa)"finish"#

#larrcolor(white)(aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)/color(white)(a)rarr#

#color(white)(aaaa)-200color(white)(aaaaaaa)0color(white)(aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa)+8800#

This is why the equation uses
