 Question 438428: How would you solve the problem: The height of a ball is measured by the function h(t)=-16t^2+112t-64, where h(t) is measured in feet and t is time in seconds. (a) Evaluate h(2) and explain what dependent and independent variables represent. (b) What is the height of the ball at 3 seconds? (c) When is the ball at a height of 128 ft.?

 Question 438431: Solve the indicated variable. A=P(2+r)^2. r=? That should be the power of 2. I'm not sure how to start. I know I have to get the r by itself but the P is throwing me off. If the P wasn't there I would have squared both sides. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Click here to see answer by Alan3354(34679)

 Question 438629: what is the quadraric funtion that fits each set of data points. (1,-2) (-1,8) (2,-1) The equation I came up with is: (f(x)=-2/3x^2-5x-3) Thank you! Click here to see answer by stanbon(60778)

 Question 438654: The question asks students to graph y=-x^2+4x+1 and to have all x intercepts and y intercepts labeled. I have figued out that the vertex is (2,5), the y intercept is (0,1) and I have worked out the problem to get points of (2,5) & (-1,-4) I am having an issue figurng out exactly what the points are when the lines cross the x axis.

 Question 439340: I am no good at word problems, is there anyone who can help me with the problem below? The cumulative number of car accidents from 2000 to 2010 can be modeled by the quadratic expression C= 25x^2 + 550x +7,300, where x=1 corresponds to 2000, x= 2 corresponds to 2001, and so on until x = 11 corresponds to 2010. Find the number of car accidents in 2004 ? Thank you so much. Click here to see answer by jorel1380(2518)

 Question 439434: 1. If a projectile is launched with an initial velocity of feet per second from an initial height of feet, then its height in feet is determined by the quadratic function where t is the time in seconds. When you graph the function you will have the parabolic shape where the maximum point is called the vertex. If a ball is tossed upward with velocity 64 feet per second from a height of 5 feet, the function to represent the height at any time t is given with the equation s(t)=-16t^2+64t+5 a) In how many seconds will the ball reach the maximum height? (5 pts) b)What is the maximum height in feet that the ball reaches? (5 pts) Click here to see answer by lwsshak3(7679)
