Applied Calculus, 3/E by Deborah Hughes-Hallet
Suppose a car is moving with increasing velocity and
suppose we measure the car's velocity every two
seconds, obtaining the data in Table 5.1:
How far has the car traveled at most?
How far has the car traveled at least?

Yes, if we know the
velocity at more
points in time.
