 Question 36342: I asked this a few days ago but didn't get an answer. Can someone help me with this please? When using the quadratic formula to solve a quadratic equation ax2 + bx + c = 0, the discriminant is b2 - 4ac. This discriminant can be positive, zero, or negative. (When the discriminate is negative, then we have the square root of a negative number. This is called an imaginary number, sqrt(-1) = i. ) Explain what the value of the discriminant means to the graph of y = ax2 + bx + c. Hint: Chose values of a, b and c to create a particular discriminant. Then, graph the corresponding equation. In the real world, where might these imaginary numbers be used?

 Question 35899: Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 32 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 = -16t2 + v0t + s0 • 16 represents ½g, 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. a)What is the function that describes this problem? b)The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second? c)How long will it take to hit the ground? d)What is the maximum height of the ball?
