1. DAY 1 BRAINTEASER / WOD A 30 year old man married a 25 year old woman. She died at age 50 and her husband was so devastated that he cried for years. Ten years after he stopped crying, he died. If he had lived to be 80, how many years was he a widower? ANSWER: Acceleration- Equals the change in velocity divided by the time for the change to take place; occurs when an object speeds up, slows down, or turns. (pg 288)
