 Question 490482: I have been working on solving is quadratic equation. I can get it set up but it is part of a word problem which has a two decimal answers.The prob. is a modeling problem. An astronaut on the moon throws a baseball upward. The astronaut is 6ft 6inches tall and the initial velocity of the ball is 30ft per sec. The height s of the ball in feet is given by the equation s=-2.7t^2 +30t+6.5 where t is the number of seconds after the ball is thrown. Part A: After how many seconds is the ball 12ft above the moon's surface? Round to the nearest 10th. Part B. is how many second will it take for the ball to return to the surface? Round to the nearest hundredth. What I have so far is: multiplied by 10 to get rid of the decimals 120=-27t^2 + 300t + 65, 120-120=-27t^2 + 300t + 65-120, 0=-27t^2 + 300t + -55 x=-(300)+or -the sq.root(300)^2-4(27)(-55) divided by 2(27) I am getting x=-300 +or- sq.rt95940 divided by 5.4.
