 Question 18328: Greetings everyone! I could really use some help from one of the wise Math wizards out there! Could someone please help me solve this word problem? I am stumped: If a soccer ball is kicked straight up with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second, then its height above the earth is a function of time given by s(t) = -16t^2 + 32t. Graph this function for "0" less than or equal to "t" less than or equal to 2. What is the maximum height reached by the ball? My head hurts already! Thanks to all.

 Question 18584: If you have a string of length 50 cm, what are the dimensions of the rectangle of maximum area that you can enclose with your string? Explain your reasoning. What about a string of length k cm? I've gotten up to the quadratic equation for the area, which is X^2 - 25X = Area. Then you have to find the third component of the formula which I don't know how to do. Then you have to state what x and y are, and I don't really know that, either. This is finding a formula, and without information on x and y, I don't see how you can actually find the numbers. The last part of question asks for a general formula, and the book says it's k/4 by k/4. So, I have the answer, but no explanation, which is the most important part. This doesn't make sense unless the rectangle is a square, because with a rectangle the two k's would be different. Can you help me with this? Thank you in advance. -Jessie Click here to see answer by Earlsdon(6287)
