 Question 76900: Hello tutor, Okay so we are doing quadratic formulas and I get the first half of the steps. I dont understand though, what to do after you get the most simplified square root. I dont know what you are supposed to do with the denominator and the stuff on the outside by the add or subtraction sign. I've looked at tons of websites with just the steps on it, but not words, so i do not understand. If maybe you could clear that up that would be great. Thank you.

 Question 77604: will someone help me on how to get the particular equation for the quadratic function and will you please show specific step. The sluggers were up to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning in a game against the ditchers. Theo Slam was up to bat. As he plugged the ball toward left field, it rose from 3 to 10 to 50 feet as the horizontal distance from home plate increased from 0 to 2 to 14 feet. Assume that the vertical distance varies quadratically with the horizontal distance. Can someone please help me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!''. Click here to see answer by bucky(2189)
