Area under the graph = 200m, so find all the areas of the simple shapes, add them together and equate to 200m, and you should find u

The total area under the graph is 200metres. Work out the total area under the graph in terms of u and form an equation then solve for u.

Ok we can make this simpler. We know in the first 20 seconds he ran 162m. So 200-162=38m. So the final segment area must equal 38. It’s a trapezium so use the formula 1/2(a+b)h and substitute your values in and set equal to 38. Can you take it from here?

No ... Core Maths (also known as Functional Maths) is the qualification offered to those who passed their GCSE but not with top grades, and wish to continue studying maths but not to take the A level course.

but wouldnt this be the basic foundation for a-level maths since its apparently a grade 9 topic and has come down from a-levels into gcse

This is not grade 9 or anywhere near to A-Level. This is probably a grade 6 Question

Yes. To answer a question such as this you've got to understand the key points about velocity / time graphs (namely that the gradient gives you the acceleration, and the area under the graph gives you the distance travelled), to reason forward and backwards, apply a variety of geometrical area formulas ... it's quite a complicated question.

My Year 12s didn't do it at all well, and I'm going to be going over it all again with them after Easter.
