What is the distance, speed and time triangle?
In Prelim Standard Math, speed is the rate that compares the distance travelled to the time taken (measured in km/h).
The formulas that are found within the table are mentioned below:
Distance = speed x time
Speed = distance / time
Time = distance / speed
How to use the distance, speed and time triangle
The video below explains how to use the triangle to work out distance, speed and time within a problem.
The following video explains the triangle in a simpler concept, however, uses an American metric system. The same concepts found in the triangle still apply.
What is stopping distance?
The stopping distance is the distance a vehicle travels from the time a driver sees an event occurring until the time it takes for a vehicle to be brought to a stop. The following video explains the stopping distance formula and how to apply it.
