June Vacation Chap 9.2 RATE (L3) CONSTANT Rate vs AVERAGE Rate

Here are 2 scenarios:
  • The tap in the bathroom leaks - 2 drops of water droplets for every minute. 2 drops of water/minute is considered as "CONSTANT RATE".
  • BenoĆ®t Lecomte, the French long distance swimmer was the first man to swim across the Atlantic Ocean at the rate of 43.6 miles in a day. 43.6 miles/day is considered as "AVERAGE RATE".
Are you able to tell the difference between CONSTANT Rate and AVERAGE Rate?
When do we use CONSTANT rate and when to use AVERAGE rate?

Attempt the following Quiz... It may help you to sharpen your thoughts...
