The acceleration a in \( \displaystyle \frac{\text{ft}}{\text{sec}^2}\) of an object is given by the equation \(a = -v\), where \(v\) is the velocity of the object in \( \displaystyle \frac{\text{ft}}{\text{sec}}\). If the initial velocity is 1 \( \displaystyle \frac{\text{ft}}{\text{sec}}\), then the position function could be
\(Ce^{-t} \)
\(Ce^t \)

A taxi driver is going from LaGuardia Airport to Kennedy Airport at an average speed of \(v\) miles per hour. The distance is thirty miles and gas costs $1.33 per gallon. The taxi consumes gas at a rate of \( \displaystyle f(v) = 2 + \frac{v^2}{600}\) gallons per hour and \( 10 \leq v \leq 55\). What average speed will minimize the total cost of fuel?
