Aphysics student who is studying velocity and acceleration makes the following statement: “if an object is slowing down, its speed is gradually decreasing. that means that it’s acceleration must be negative.” would you agree with this statement?

Answers

Hi, your answer is not correct. this is a cumulative  
Idont understand the question

I would agree with the statement.

Explanation:

If an object is slowing down, it is covering less distance per unit time and as a result its speed decreases. If acceleration is positive, the object would speed up instead of slowing down.
