### QUESTION 1 of 10

The following speed-time graph shows the speeds of a cyclist on a journey lasting two hours.

Notice that.....

after 10 minutes the cyclist is riding at 30 km/h.

the cyclist is only stationery when the speed is 0 km/h.

Look at this speed-time graph showing a cyclist's journey.

How many minutes does it take for the cyclist to reach a speed of 35 km/h.
