Determine and Apply a Formula
My topic for this assignment is was to determine the amount of people possible to cross a crosswalk during the time of the crosswalk?s walking symbols. To calculate this I made an algebraic equation to support my idea, and an example to support my equation.
D= distance of crosswalk on an average road=30 ft.
W= Width of normal crosswalk= 6ft.
S= Space between each person=1ft.
F= Avg. Speed of people walking= 1ft. per second
P= number of people possible to cross the crosswalk during appropriate time= 45 people
R= people in the 1/3 section of the crosswalk= 15 people
