 Question 33247: A toy rocket is launched from a point 60m from a school building. The school building is 40m wide. On the other side of the building is a 15m wide parking lot and next to it is a pond that is 10m wide. The rocket is aimed over the building to land in the center of the pond, 120m away. The building is 30m tall. The rocket's trajectory should be as low as possible and the rocket should clear the building by at least 5m. What is the equation for the parabola formed by the trajectory.

 Question 33681: A retailer spent \$48 to purchase a number of special mugs. Two of them were broken i the store, but by selling each of the remaining mugs for \$3 above the original cost per mug, she made a total profit of \$22. Construct an equation that will allow us solve for the number of mugs, denoted by n, that were originally purchased. If the price for n mugs is \$48, how can we express the cost per mug?

 Question 34173: I need help with the following 2 questions... 1. Solve by extracing square roots: 3x^2-80=0 I figured this was it, can you check the work? 3x^2 - 80 = 0 3x^2 = 80 3x^2/3 = 80/3 x^2 = 80/3 sq root of x^2 = sq root of 80/3 Answer - x=sq root of (= or -)80/3?? Does the (+ or -) have to be there? 2. Solve by extracting square roots: (2x-2)^2 = 9 sq root of (2x-2)^2 = sq root of 9 2x-2 = (+ or -)3 This is where I am confused... is the next step dividing it all by 2, or taking the -2 to the other side of the problem?
