# Solving Problems With Quadratic Equations Lucky for you, you can solve the quadratic equations, now you just have to learn how to apply this useful skill.On this particular page, we are going to take a look at a physics "projectile problem". We know that the ball is going to shoot from the cannon, go into the air, and then fall to the ground. A ball is shot from a cannon into the air with an upward velocity of 40 ft/sec. Hopefully, you agree that we can use the quadratic formula to solve this equation.This actually never really occurred because the ball was shot from the cannon and was never shot from the ground. The other answer was 2.54 seconds which is when the ball reached the ground (x-axis) after it was shot.

Let's just estimate on our graph and also make sure that we get this visual in our head.

From looking at this graph, I would estimate the times to be about 0.7 sec and 1.9 sec. Yes, we must substitute 20 feet for h(t) because this is the given height.

The questions progress well so that students can get a good conceptual understanding of every major topic.

A disciplined practice through this book prepares the students for both examinations fully.

There is enough coverage on new additions to the syllabus with a significant amount of questions.

The following animation is interactive: by clicking on the button, you can generate a random equation and its solutions appear at the same time.

Their difference is 2, so I can write Their product is 224, so From , I get . The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 4 times the smallest side. By Pythagoras, The hypotenuse is 4 times the smallest side, so Plug into and solve for s: Since doesn't make sense, the solution is .

Since the speed can't be negative, the answer is 30 miles per hour. Let s be the smallest side and let h be the hypotenuse.

This is the best book that can be recommended for the new A Level - Edexcel board: it covers every single topic in detail;lots of worked examples; ample problems for practising; beautifully and clearly presented.

These word problems involve situations I've discussed in other word problems: The area of a rectangle, motion (time, speed, and distance), and work.
