Solution

The total stopping distance is equal to the sum of the distance traveled during reaction time and the distance traveled after the brakes have been applied

ON the left side graph, we do have, accordingly with the instructions provided: 45

ON the right side graph, we do have a rough value of \(75 < X < 90\)

\(X= 80/85\)

\(45 + 80/85 = 125/130\)

The correct answer is \(A\)

We have a spot in the right graph which says that distance is 88. Is it right?

on left side graph it is clearly 45 and on right side graph, the value is 88
88+45 = 133 approximately so answer is A
