Homework Help: Tough Math

Posted by HUNU on Monday, January 23, 2012 at 9:39pm.

Suppose the ball was 3.24 feet above ground when it was hit, and that it reached a maximum height of approximately 102.51 feet when it had traveled a ground distance of approximately 214.26 feet. The ball lands after traveling a ground distance of approximately 432 feet.

Find an equation of the form y = C(x-z1)(x-z2) where z1 and z2 are the zeros (or roots) of the quadratic polynomial (or x-intercepts of the graph) and C is a scaling constant that needs to be determined.

Thanks!
