    The fastest car in the world, the Bugati Veyron, can reach a top speed of 408 km/h. The graph represents its velocity.

    This figure has a graph in the first quadrant. It increases to where x is approximately 03:00 mm:ss and then drops off steep. The maximum height of the graph, here the drop occurs is approximately 420 km/h.

    23) [T] Use the graph to estimate the velocity every 20 sec and fit to a graph of the form \(\displaystyle v(t)=aexp^{bx}sin(cx)+d.\) (Hint: Consider the time units.)

    24) [T] Using your function from the previous problem, find exactly how far the Bugati Veyron traveled in the 1 min 40 sec included in the graph.

    Answers may vary. Ex: \(\displaystyle 9.405\) km
