 Question 417627: Two young boys, Bob and Tom, are mowing grass one summer as a means of making money to save for their college education. They always split the work and proceeds equally. They have one lawnmower. They obtain a new job which involves mowing a 40' by 80' rectangular vacant lot. The owner wants it mowed in a collapsing pattern (begin mowing around the outside perimeter, with each pass moving closer to the center of the lot). Bob will mow first, turning the work over to Tom when he has mowed exactly half the area. Bob decides that he will stop at a uniform distance in from the perimeter on all sides, leaving a remaining rectangle for Tom to complete. At what uniform distance (in feet to 2 decimal places) should Bob stop mowing? Solve by creating and solving a quadratic equation. Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15649)

 Question 418953: I was absent and my friends notes are off so I'm really confused. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Here are my instructions : Write the equation of the axis of symmetry, and find the coordinates of the vertex of the graph of each function. Idetify the vertex as a maximum or minimum. Then graph the function. The first ones are REALLY HARD. However, I'll give an easy one so I can see it all done so I can figure out the hard ones. The problem is : y = 3x^2 - 6x + 4 . We are graphing quadratic functions. Thanks so much! Click here to see answer by shree840(260)
