The diagram shows a distance-time graph.
Study the graph carefully, paying attention to the slopes (i.e. the speed), the pauses, the time taken and the distance.
Write a story that takes into account the 'movement' of Raj and Michael.
- It should include information like where they begin their journey.
- It should also take into account the distance they travel, the speed they travel at, what happened during the pauses, etc.
