 Question 75093: 30A garden area is 30 feet long qand 20 feet wide. A path of uniform width is set around the edge. If the remaining garden is 400 square feet, what is the width of the path? 30 * 20 = 600 600-400 =200 lw=Area lw= 200 I drew a picture and still really did not make sense. If I could figure out how to use the quadratic to solve this I could easily do the actual math, but I am struggling setting up the equation. Click here to see answer by checkley75(3666)

 Question 75706: I have worked through this problem and end up with a different answer. I am not understanding how to reduce the sqrt, everything I have done to this point matched the solver. I do not want the decimal form, it needs to remain in sqrt. This not from a text book, it is practice for a placement exam. 2+ or - sqrt of 20 x= __________________ 2 I imagine there is a better way to type this out for you, but I don't know it...sorry.

 Question 75952: Suppose a baseball is shot up from the ground straight up with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second. A function can be created by expressing distance above the ground, s, as a function of time, t. This function is s = -16t2 + v0t + s0 • 16 represents ½g, the gravitational pull due to gravity (measured in feet per second 2). • v0 is the initial velocity (how hard do you throw the object, measured in feet per second). • s0 is the initial distance above ground (in feet). If you are standing on the ground, then s0 = 0. a) What is the function that describes this problem? b) The ball will be how high above the ground after 1 second? c) How long will it take to hit the ground? d) What is the maximum height of the ball?
