let's intersect them: -x^2 - 3x + 6 = 3x + k -x^2 - 6x + 6-k = 0 x^2 + 6x + k-6 = 0 to have 2 distinct real solutions , the discriminant must be > 0 b^2 - 4ac > 0 36 - 4(1)(k-6) > 0 36 -4k + 24 > 0 > 0 -4k > -60 k < 15 Notice in my graph, when k = 0, ...

cost = 65 + 75t so if 65+75t = 196.25 75t = 131.25 t = 1.75 so the job took 1 hour and 45 minutes, I will let you figure out when the job was done
