 Question 301466: An open box is formed from a rectangular piece of cardboard by cutting 2 cm by 2 cm squares from each corner and then folding up the sides and soldering the seams. The length of the original piece of cardboard was 8 cm more than it's width. If the volume of the open box is , what are the dimensions of the metal box? Use a polynomial equation. Also, If you could reply with the initial equation, that would help me understand it better. P.S. If you can not answer this direct it to the Word Problems: Misc Word Problems tutor.

 Question 301587: Right now we are solving these Quadratic Equations with the zero factor property. The problem is a word problem: If the cost, C, for maunufactoring x units of a certain product is given by find the number of units maufactored at a cost of \$12,640. I already started the problem by solving for x and rewriting the equation in standard form: that is my ending result, I now have to factor the quadratic expression but I am stuck, I use the "diamond method" to help me factor- I need to know what two numbers have the product of -12600 and have the sum of -15. I can solve the rest of the problem after You help me find those two numbers. Click here to see answer by nyc_function(2733)

 Question 301613: The height of a ball in feet is modeled as f(x)=-16x^2+96x, where x is the time in seconds after it is hit. How long is the ball in the air? Click here to see answer by nerdybill(7003)

 Question 301654: Use the quadratic formula to determine the x-intercepts (if any) of the following function. Then evaluate the function for several values of x, and use the resulting points to graph the function. Show your work; and submit your graph through the Dropbox. f(x) = 2x^2+2 *I am completely lost on this so can you please show the work to anyone that helps me out. I don't just want an easy answer. I'm trying to figure out how its done. Thanks sooooo much in advance!! Be blessed!! * Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9144)

 Question 301751: use the discriminant to determine the number of solutions of the quadratic equation, and whether the solutions are real or complex. Note: It is not necessary to find the roots; just determine the number and types of solutions. (3)1/2y2 - 4y - 7(3)1/2 = 0 Click here to see answer by richwmiller(9144)

 Question 301870: My problem is solving each equation using the quadratic fromula, I know how to do the work, but what i don't know is what formula to use like -b/2a or -b plus or minus the square root of b squared minus 4 multiplied by a and c over 2a or h=-16t squared plus vt plus s. This is one of the problems on my worksheet 10x squared minus 6x -1 =0 Click here to see answer by mananth(12270)
