The speed of a subway train is represented by the equation z=s^2+2s for all situations where 0≤s≤7, where z is the rate of speed in kilometers per hour and s is the time in seconds from the moment the train starts moving. In kilometers per hour, how much faster is the subway train moving after 7 seconds than it was moving after 3 seconds?

After 7 sec z=49+14=63 km/hr

After 3 sec z=9+6=15 km/hr

difference= 48 km/he

Given: z=s^2+2s for 0≤s≤7

z(3) = 3^2 + 2*3 = 15
z(7) = 7^2 + 2*7 = 63

Therefore z(7) - z(3) = 63 - 15 = 48 km/hr

z(7) = 7^2 + 2(7) = 49 + 14 = 63

z(3) = 3^2 + 2(3) = 9 + 6 = 15

So the difference is 63 - 15 = 48.

Answer: D
