# Refer to the graphic. If a cheetah and tortoise travel at their top speeds for 1minute; how much farther does the cheetah travel?

**Solution:**

The graph represents different animals and their top speed in metres per second

Given, a cheetah and tortoise travel at their top speed for 1 minute.

We have to find how far the cheetah travels.

We know, speed = distance/time

Distance = speed × time

1 minute = 60 seconds

Now, distance travelled by cheetah = 31.3 × 60

= 1878 m

Distance travelled by tortoise = 0.08 × 60

= 4.8 m

Difference in distance travelled by two animals = 1878 - 4.8

= 1873.2 m

Therefore, the required distance is 1873.2 m
