a would be 4 and b would be 16

a would be 4x^6 and b would be 16x^2?

Factor 4x6 – 16x2 using the difference of squares method. Be sure to factor completely and show your work. If this is not possible for some reason, state why.

Simplify (5x4 – 3x2 + 7x – 10) – (2x4 – 3x3 + 6x – 17)

Factor 4x6 – 16x2 using the difference of squares method. Be sure to factor completely and show your work. If this is not possible for some reason, state why.

Factor x2 + 9 using any method you choose. Show your work. If this is not possible for some reason, state why

-4.9t2 + 24.5t + 117.6 = 0 this is what i got for 18.

12.Work backwards to write a quadratic equation that will have solutions of x = -1/2 and x =4.

(x+.5)(x-4)=0

2x2-7x-4 =0

#19 Re: Help Me ! » Solving Quadratics by Factoring and Graphing » 2017-08-04 01:38:49

x-12=0, x-2=0

      (x-12)(x-2)=0

  x2-2x-14+24 =0
This is for number 11.

#20 Re: Help Me ! » Solving Quadratics by Factoring and Graphing » 2017-08-03 03:36:34

x-3=0, x+7=0

      (x-3)(x+7)=0

(x-3)(x+7)=x2+4x-21
This is one of my attempts for number 10.

10.    Work backwards to write a quadratic equation that will have solutions of x = 3 and x = -7.

11.    Work backwards to write a quadratic equation that will have solutions of x = 12 and x = 2.

12.    Work backwards to write a quadratic equation that will have solutions of x = -1/2 and x = 4.  (Your equation must only have integer coefficients, meaning no fractions or decimals.)

18.   A tennis ball is launched straight upward with an initial velocity of 24.5 m/s from the edge of a cliff that is 117.6 meters above the ground. Which quadratic equation could be used to correctly determine when the ball will hit the ground:




4.9t2 + 24.5t + 117.6 = 0

-4.9t2 - 24.5t + 117.6 = 0

-4.9t2 + 24.5t - 117.6 = 0

4.9t2 + 24.5t - 117.6 = 0

-4.9t2 + 24.5t + 117.6 = 0


19. Solve the equation you chose in question 18 to determine when the ball will hit the ground. (HINT: If you don't get one of the answers listed for this question, then maybe you chose the wrong equation in #18. Use this opportunity to double check your work!)


t = 8 seconds

t = 4 seconds

t = 3 seconds

t = -3 seconds

The ball will never reach the ground.


20. Using the same equation, determine when the ball is at a height of 49 meters.
