**Concept Question 1 (Dartmouth)**

Two cars take trips. Each car is equipped with a recording speedometer that graphs the car’s speed as a function of time. The areas under the two graphs are the same. What can we conclude?

- The two trips took the same amount of time.
- The two cars traveled the same total distance as measured by their odometers.
- The two cars traveled the same average speed.
- The starting and ending points of the two trips were the same distance apart.
- We can’t conclude anything unless we know whether the two trips took the same amount of time.
