Algebra II – The Treadmill Problem

So, I ended the unit on Linear Functions with a problem relating to the videos below.

I asked them for the calories/mile and calories/hour for two different people:

1. A 115-lb person running 4.5 mph and,

2. A 150-lb person running 7.5 mph.

I’ll report back with the results. You’ve got an idea?
