If the first object takes t seconds to hit, h - 4.9t^2 = 0 t = √(h/4.9) the second object is thus h-4.9(t-1)^2 = 20 h = 31.63 m

Thomas put 1/4 of the c coins he had in his pocket into the jar under his bed. He put 16 coins into the jar. The equation that models this situation is 1/4c = 16. How many coins did Thomas have in his pocket? a 4 coins b 12 coins c 20 coins d 64 coins The answer would be c.
