 Question 85605: The length of a rectangle is 1 cm longer than its width. If the diagonal of the rectangle is 4cm, what are the dimensions (the length and the width) of the rectangle? The equation h=-16t^2+112t gives the height of an arrow, shot upward from the ground with an initial velocity of 112ft/s, where t is the time after the arrow leaves the ground. Find the time it takes for the arrow to reach a height of 120ft? A ball is thrown upward from the roof of a building 100m tall with an initial velocity of 20m/s. When will the ball reach a height of 80m? The demand equation for a certain type of printer is given by...D=-200p+35,000. The supply equation is predicted to be...S=-p^2+400p-20,000.
