Multiple choice:

1. What is the value of n so that the expression x² + 12x + n is a perfect square trinomial?

6

36

72

144

2. What are the solutions of the equation x2 + 4x = 96?

2, –48

–12, 8

4. A rocket is launched from atop a 105-foot cliff with an initial velocity of 156 ft/s. The height of the rocket above the ground at time t is given by h = –16t2 + 156t + 105. When will the rocket hit the ground after it is launched? Round to the nearest tenth of a second.

4.9 s

9.8 s

0.6 s

10.4 s

x^2+4x-96=0

what factors of 96 are 4 apart?

(x-12)(x+8) = 0

x^2+14x+130=0

the discriminant is 196-420 < 0

set h=0 and solve for t

–16t^2 + 156t + 105 = 0
