yes because the smoother the surface is, the lower the friction ( the force that makes an object stop from a movement )

therefore, according to my science textbook; the rough textures have more friction and so, the texture of ramp does affect the speed of a toy car.

The distance moved by the cube was different when different materials were used to cover the surface of the ramp. Explain why?

It is likely that the different surfaces had different textures in terms of roughness and turgidity, including the surface area of the item in contact with the material. For example, a rug material would have higher friction acting on the object, meaning that it will slide a shorter distance, while for an oiled wooden plank, the lubricant aids the items in having less friction experienced. This would cause the object to travel a further distance.
