 Question 133644: I have a chapter nine test tomarrow 4/26 and i need help! ok..it has to do with quadrtatic equations..Vertical motion models: droped and thrown H=-16t squared + s and -16t squared+vt+s the question is.. A falcon dives toward a pigeon on the ground. when the falcon is at a height if 100 ft the pigeon sees the falcon. which is diving at a 220 ft per sec. estimate the time the pigeon has to escape. h= height t= time s= initial height v= initial velocity for some reason you also have to use the quaratic formlua -b +- squareroot of b squared - 4 (a)(C) over 2(a) Click here to see answer by solver91311(16885)

 Question 133795: Hello and thanks for helping me out in advance. This question is on a take home quiz and I"m not sure how to do it. The directions say to find the greatest common factor here is the question -12ab, 21a^2, 18ab^2, -21b^2 now where i'm having the trouble is there are no common terms. Or at least I can't see any because there are non that have both an a and b or just an a or b I"m assuming 3 and then something after it but I have no clue..I know it's probably an easy answer but I can't seem to come up with it.
