    Please help me formulate and work out this answer of this.

    Matty goes on a ride with his friends. The graph shows how his VELOCITY varied during the trip.

    USE THE GRAPH TO CALCULATE the total DISTANCE travelled by Matty during the time shown on the graph.

    Distance=velocity*time

    Any time you're confronted with a velocity vs time graph, you should know that the area under the graph is equal to the distance travelled.

    So calculate the area of that triangle formed by the graph and you'll find your answer.
