 Question 31755: Hello: Here is the problem I am working on: f(x)=x^4+13x^2+36 I am to find the complex zeros. I found -5 (x+5). But, if I were to divide the factor into the equation, I don't get a quadratic equation, so I cannot use the quad formula. Any help appreciated.

 Question 31791: Can someone help with this word problem, it is not making any sense. Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 64 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t^2 + v0t + s0 • 16 represents 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second^2). • v0 is the initial velocity (how hard do you throw the object, measured in feet per second). • s0 is the initial distance above ground (in feet). If you are standing on the ground, then s0 = 0. I need to find the function that describes this problem? The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second? How long will it take to hit the ground? What is the maximum height of the ball? What time will the maximum height be attained? Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)

 Question 31031: Hello: I have a question about the following problem: 2x^3-3x^2-3x-5=0 I was never showed how to solve these. The book has me VERY confused. I am trying to find a zero. For my p/q, I got (plus/minus) 1, 1/2, 5, 5/2. I cannot get any of them to = 0 when I substitute. Is my arithmetic wrong, or am I going about this the wrong way? Wouldn't the zeros be the answers?

 Question 33121: In my math class we are doing Functions right now. The specific three we are using are Linear, Quadratic, and Exponential. Linear is y=mx+b, Quadratic is y=ax^2(+b) and Exponential is y=a*b^x. Each problem gives ordered pairs, or a table. I'll show you a table, and my answer, which I do not believe to be correct, since when I plug in some numbers from the table, doesnt not equal out. EX: X Y -2 1.5 0 .5 2 -.5 4 -1.5 y=-x +.5 Now, that is how my math teacher taught us to solve it; find the slope, y intercept when x=0, etc, and when you plug numbers in from the table, my answer does not work. Obviously, since you are very intelligent, you will be able to see my flaw. Thank you. Click here to see answer by venugopalramana(3286)
