 Question 610063: I am doing "Applications of Quadratic Equations" and the textbook constantly asks 'What are the possible values for t, h whatever'. Eg. h=16t-4t^2 or h=-1/16(d-10)^2 + 9 I am trying to find the possible values for the pronumeral subsitituiting x. I have tried the quadratic formula which gave me the correct solution for h=-1/16(d-10)^2 + 9 but not h=16t-4t^2. How else can I solve this question without trial and error (which takes forever?)
