# Cole ran 3 miles in 27 minutes . Carson ran 2 miles in 20 minutes. Aaravind ran 5 miles in 35 minutes if each student ran at a constant rate , who is the fastest runner?

Aaravind is the fastest runner.

To calculate their running speed, divide miles by minutes.

Cole runs 3 miles every 27 minutes. This is equivalent to 0.11 miles per 1 minute .

Carson runs 2 miles every 20 minutes. This is equivalent to 0.1 miles per 1 minute .

Aaravind runs 5 miles every 35 minutes. This is equivalent to 0.14 miles per 1 minute .

To determine the fastest runner, we calculate the speed of each runner by dividing the distance covered by the time taken.

For Cole: Speed = ( \frac{3 \text{ miles}}{27 \text{ minutes}} ) For Carson: Speed = ( \frac{2 \text{ miles}}{20 \text{ minutes}} ) For Aaravind: Speed = ( \frac{5 \text{ miles}}{35 \text{ minutes}} )

We then compare the speeds to identify the fastest runner.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
