 Question 251316: Solve the problem. Round to the nearest tenth, if necessary. A rock falls from a tower that is 432 feet high. As it is falling, it's height is given by the formula h= 432- 16t^2. How many seconds will it take for the rock to hit the ground (h=0)? Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)

 Question 251684: Problem: Originally, a rectangle was three times as long as it is wide. When 2 cm were subtracted from the length and 5 cm were added to the width, the resulting rectangle had an area of 90 cm squared. Find the dimensions of the new rectangle. hmmmm, I tried this problem...but I keep getting decimal answers when solving :/ We are supposed to use only one variable in the actual equation, and use Quadratic equations to solve. My Attempt: w=width l=length l=3w Formula- A=width(length) (3w-2)(w+5)=90 Then I foiled and got: 3w^2+13w-100=0 And I get stuck there :/ I don't think it factors and I'm not sure if I foiled wrong or set it up wrong. :/ Help me, please? Thanks :) I put this under Algebra, although I am in Algebra II, I hope that is fine :D Click here to see answer by jsmallt9(3296)

 Question 251715: how do i find the quadratic equation,with this question: " A rancher wants to yield the max amount of edible beef off of his square mile of land. At first he finds that as he adds more cattle, his yield goes up. However, if he overgrazes, the yield goes down. An agricultural agent tell him that his yield will vary quadratically with the # of animals that he grazes. For 5 head of cattle, his production is 8750 pounds of beef, and for 10 head of cattle, he reaps 15,000 pounds of beef. He had no production when he was grazing no cattle." Find the particular equation of this function expressing pounds of beef produced in terms of the number of cattle. Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15652)

 Question 251878: I need help understanding the method for solving quadratic equations from India. The equation is x^2-2x-13=0. I have tried x^2-2x=13 4x^2-8x=52 4x^2-8x+4=52+4 4x^2-8x+4=56 then it asks to take the square root of both sides. Since I cant calculate the square root of 56 I have to believe that I have an error somewhere. Does the negative 2x change my equation? Thanks for your help.

 Question 252024: 4x^2-4x+3=0 Move the constant to the right side of the equation. Multiply each term in the equation by four times the coefficient of the x^2 term. Square the coefficient of the original x term and add it to both sides of the equation Take the square root of both sides. Set the left side of the equation equal to the positive square root of the number on the right side and solve for x Set the left side of the equation equal to the negative square root of the number on the right side of the equation and solve for x.
