A person standing close to the edge on the top of a 160-foot building throws a baseball vertically upward. The quadratic function

s(t) = -16t^2 +64t + 160

models the ball's height above the ground, s(t), in feet, t seconds after it was thrown.

After how many seconds does the ball reach its maximum height? What is the maximum height?

How many seconds does it take until the ball finally hits the ground? Round to the nearest tenth of a second.

1. Vf = Vo + gt,

t = (Vf - Vo) / g,

t(up) = (0 - 64) / -32 = 2s. = Time to reach max. ht.

2. h(2) = -16*2^2 + 64*2 + 160 = 224Ft.

above ground.

3. h = Vo*t + 0.5g*t^2 = 224Ft.,

0*t + 16t^2 = 224,

t^2 = 14,

t(dn) = 3.7s.

T = t(up) + t(dn) = 2 + 3.7 = 5.7s. = Time to hit ground.

4. Y = 4(sqrtx) + 35,

Y = 4*o + 35 = 35cm.

5. Eq1: F(x) = Y = 2x^2.

Let X = 1, Y = 2*1^2 = 2

Eq1:Y=2x^2------Eq2:

V(0,0)----------V(7,4)

P(1,2)----------P(8,6)

Y = a(x-h)^2 + k,

a(8-7)^2 + 4 = 6,

a = 2.

Eq2: Y = 2(x-7)^2 + 4.

Notice that the vertex is shifed 7 units to the right and 4units upward.Therefore, each point on a graph

of Eq2 should be shifted likewise.

6. F(x) = Y = -3(x-2)^2 + 12.

Y = a(x-h)^2 + k.

V(h,k),

V(2,12).
