an object moves in a straight line given by s=2x^2-3t where s is in meters and t is the time in seconds the object is in motion. how long to nearest tenth will it take to move 17 meters?
t=-b +or- sqrtb^2-4ac/2a
Did I do all of the correct steps? I think I did but this is really confusing
I have worked it more.....
t=3+or-sqrt145/4 (is this my answer?)
yes, you are right, but when typing on here you should use brackets to establish the correct order of operation
t = (3 ± √145)/4
I got the ± by holding down the Alt key and at the same time punching in 241 on the number key pad, then releasing the Alt key
I got the √ by holding down the Alt key and at the same time punching in 251 on the number key pad, then releasing the Alt key
