Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Anil on Saturday, October 8, 2011 at 7:19pm.

In a real-life situation, to model the distance x and the height of hitting a baseball y as in: y = ax^2 + bx + c

1. When dealing with the initial height of the ball, what is happening when x = 0?
Is it that the ball has not yet traveled any distance?

2. What are the possible values for y when x = 0?
I know only the constant term would be left. So would I be correct in saying "the constant term" or how do I better say it?

3. Regarding the maximum height of the ball: knowing some values of y are not reasonable, how does that affect choosing a window for the graph?
