 Question 187247: If the zeroes of a quadratic function are -4 and 6, and its y-intercept is 12, determine the function in general form without using regression. My name is Chantal and I know that -4 and 6 are the roots and -12 is the last part of the equation in general form but I don't know what he means by regression. I'm not sure how to go about doing this equation. If you could help me it would be greatly appreciated. I missed school when we learnt this.This is not from a book.

 Question 187599: The equation W=120I-6I^2 represents the power (W) in watts that a 120 volt circuit can deliver if it has a resistance of 6 ohmmeter. What is the maximum power, in watts, that can be delivered by this circuit? My name is Chantal and I'm not sure how to do this. I was sick when he taught us word problems. I believe the answer is the vertex seeing that it wants a maximum but I'm not sure of the equation. Is it w= -6I^2 + 120 + 6 or is it 6=-6I^2 + 120 + 0. If you can help me it would be greatly appreciated. Please and Thank you.This is not from a text book. Chantal Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)

 Question 187632: Suppose to want to reserve a rectangular region in a large room and you have 32 ft. of masking tape. Let’s investigate how much area you can reserve with 32 ft. of masking tape and how this area changes with different lengths of sides for the rectangular region. 1) Take a guess on the dimensions of the region that would give the largest area. 2) Find the values for the table below. The column labels of base, height, and area represent the values of the base height and area of the rectangular region. Use as many different values of bases and heights as you can, but have the perimeter or the rectangular region be 32ft. Base Height Area Click here to see answer by Alan3354(30993)
