A. is f(-2) = 9? if it is, then the point (-2,9) is on the graph. Otherwise, it's not on the graph B.Plug 2 into f(x) f(2) = 2 * (2^2) - 2 - 1 The points on this graph are (2, f(2)) C. Solve -1 = 2*x^2-x-1 You should find two solutions for x. D. The domain of f is the ...

Physics
For an elastic collision, both momentum and kinetic energy are conserved. m1 = mass of colliding ball m2 = mass of ball initially at rest v1i = initial speed of colliding ball v1f = final speed of colliding ball v2i = initial speed of at rest ball = 0 v2f = final speed of at ...
