##### Solution Summary

This solution shows how to create a graph showing a woman's walking trajectory as a function of time, given her movement pattern and the time frame.

##### Solution Preview

Please refer to the attachment for the fully formatted solution and the accompanying graphical depiction of the response.

Woman's motion can be described in the following stages:

1. 0 < t < 10 sec: Constant speed (say u). The displacement with respect to the origin changes as per the equation: x = ut ........ (1)

[Note: We take the woman's position at t = 0 as the origin i.e. x = 0]

Equation (1) is that of a ...
