the height of the falling stone is 6.82-8.8t-4.9t^2 the height of the stone thrown upward is 8.8t - 4.9t^2 So, when do they meet? At t=0.3875 Now plug that into either function to get the height at that time. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=solve+6.82-8.8t-4.9t^2++%3D++8....

the tangent at P has slope x/(2a) So, the normal line is y-ap^2 = p/(2a) (x-2ap) y = p/(2a)(x-2ap)+ap^2 So, where does that line intersect y = x^2/(4a) ? p/(2a)(x-2ap)+ap^2 = x^2/4a (1/4a)x^2 - p/(2a)x + p^2(1-a) = 0 Now just solve that for x and figure y. One solution better ...

width is 10*12 = 120 inches So, it takes 120/4 widths Since the wall is an exact number of widths, we just need to figure the length to find the rolls. 10*12*4 = 480 in long so, we need 480/(20*12) = 2 rolls Makes sense, since each roll does 2 strips, and we need 4 strips.
