 Question 81749: suppose a baseball is shot up from the ground straight up with an initial velocity of 64 feet per second. a function canbe created by expressing distance above the ground,s,as a function of time,t. this function is s=-16t^2+vot+so. >16 represents 1/2g, the gravitational pull due to gravity(measured in feet per second^2) >vo is the initial velcoity(how hard do you throw a object, measured in feet per second) >So is the initial distance above ground(in feet). if you are standing on the ground, then So=0 -what is the function that describes this problem -the ball will be how high above ground after 1 second -how long will it take to hit ground -what is the max height of the ball? what time will the max height be attained?

 Question 81774: Problem In a playoff game the ball was carried by either Anderson or Brown on 21 plays. Anderson gained 36 yards, and Brown gained 54 yards. If Brown averaged twice as many yards per carry as Anderson, then on how many plays did Anderson carry the ball? I think I need to set it up as follows, but am not sure 2(36/x)= 54/21-x Thank you for your help Click here to see answer by stanbon(57228)

 Question 81806: Problem In 1981 Vladimir Poliakov set a world record of 19ft3/4in for the pole vault. To reach that height, Poliakov obtained a speed of approximately 36 ft per second on the runway. The formula h = -16t + 36t gives his height t seconds after leaving the ground. Use the formula to find the exact values of t for which his height is 18ft. This is what I have 18 = -16t + 36t 18 = 20t 20t/20 = 18/20 t = 9/10 Not sure if I did this right, would appreciate your input. Thank you Click here to see answer by rapaljer(4667)

 Question 81812: hi i need help with this it is due tomm on mothers day and i cant figure it out. A home-based company produces both hand-knitted scarves and sweaters. The scarves take 2 hours of labor to produce, and the sweaters take 14 hours. The labor available is limited to 40 hours per week, and the total production capacity is 5 items per week. Write a system of inequalities representing this situation, where x is the number of scarves and y is the number of sweaters. Then graph the system of inequalities.
