- AnonymousThe question you asked Hank Green describes a differential equation More specifically, dx/dt=-t Here x is our distance from our object (in miles) and t is our time from start (in hours) dx/dt isn't like a regular fraction, it's just notation which refers to the velocity of our object in mph. This equation's solution, given x=60 at t=0 is x=60e^(-t) Here e is a mathematical constant roughly equal to 2.718 This means x is strictly positive, i e we will never reach our object (represented by x=0)
thank you, but I don’t understand that at all lol. I’m not really a math person
