 Question 24873: 3) Suppose you throw a baseball straight up at a velocity of 64 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 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second2). 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? Answer: b) The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second? Answer: Show work in this space. c) How long will it take to hit the ground? Answer: Show work in this space. d) What is the maximum height of the ball? What time will the maximum height be attained? Answer: Show work in this space. Click here to see answer by wuwei96815(245)

 Question 25389: How do I solve this one: Sally was making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Sally cut off 1cm off each edge of the bread. If the bread is a square and the area removed was 32 cm^2 what is the length of a side of the sandwich (now that the 1 cm was removed) I have tried using (x-1)(x-1) = 32 cm, but I already have been told an answer of "7" by my teacher. I cannot get the quadratic equation, when the coefficients are plugged in, to work and render '7'. Thanks. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57352)

 Question 25817: The problem is: A DVD company wants to maximize its revenue. the company now sells dvd's for \$40 each and they have 6000 customers. a study suggests that for every \$2.00 increase in price they will lose 200 customers. what should be the selling price to maximize the company's revenue? what will that revenue be? So far I've written an equation: let R= revenue let x= # of \$2 increases R=(6000-200x)(40+x) When i try to solve, I get: x=-5 and R=245000 but I know x can not be negative.
