the path of the rocket is represented by the equation y= root under(25-x)^2. the path of a missile designed to intrersect the path of the rocket is represented by the equation x = 3/2 root under (y). the value of x at the point of intersection is 3. what is the corresponding value of y?
sorry but i didn't find the key for root under so just wrote it down.... i hope that makes sense..... please it's due tomorrow. please help!
It does not make sense to me
the parabola opening to the left
y^2 = (25-x)^2
does not hit the parabola
x^2 = (9/4) y or y = (4/9) x^2
at x = 3
