 Question 169907: pleaseplease help with this question....i submitted this last night but had a few typos. ^2 means squared. i've tried putting these numbers into the quadratic formula but am having problems with coming up with a trinomial to start from When an object is released and falls freely, its height, h meters, above the ground after t seconds is represented by the relation h = -0.5t^2g+d, where g is the acceleration due to gravity and d is the initial height of the object before it is released. Since the strength of gravity varies from planet tp planet, the value of g is specific to each planet. Supposed a rock is dropped from a height of 100m on Mars and also Venus. On Mars, g=3.7m/s^2 and on Venus, g=8.9m/s^2. How long does it take the rock to fall to a height of 25m on each planet. Click here to see answer by Alan3354(31532)

 Question 169949: This is a word problem on a worksheet that I've been given. Katy likes to catch butterflies. The equation b = -2(x-4)^2 + 25 models this habit, where b is the number of butterflies caught for the hour and x is the number of hours after she started catching. After how many hours will Katy catch the maximum amount? I am stumped on this question. I don't even know where to start... Please help, thanks. I also have some questions on a form of quadratic function. I've only done quadratic functions that are in the form y= ax^2 + bx + c. So I'm not quite sure on these 3 multiple choice questions. Here is the information: One form of a quadratic function is f(x) = a(x-b)^2 + c. Here are the questions: 1. If you wanted to shift the graph of the function up, what would you do? A. increase a B. decrease b C. increase c D. decrease a 2. If you wanted to shift the graph of the function left what would you do? A. increase b B. decrease b C. increase c D. decrease a 3. If you wanted to make the parabola wider, what would you do? A. increase a B. decrease b C. increase c D. decrease a ***Note: For question 1 I chose letter c. For question 2 I chose letter a. For question 3 I chose letter d. Click here to see answer by stanbon(57967)
