Physics question?

What does the slope of a position vs time graph represent and why? 

List a time interval where the velocity is negative

List a time where the object is furthest from the origin

List a time interval where velocity is 0

Where is velocity the greatest? Calculate this value

Where is velocity the least? Calculate this value

Where is speed the greatest? Calculate this value

Calculate the speed at 5.9s

Calculate total distance traveled

    Velocity is the rate of change of position with respect to time i.e. how fast position is changing.

    Rate of change means slope i.e. change in one variable / change in the other.

    Speed is the absolute value of velocity, so slope of 1 m/s and -1 m/s both mean speed of 1 m/s only the second one is going backwards.
