I Hard Question I Got In Maths!!! Need a Quick AnswerThe Front Face of a shampoo bottle is a parabola. The bottle is to have a height of 185mm and the length of the base is to be 70mm. #2 20060510 20:18:57
Re: I Hard Question I Got In Maths!!! Need a Quick AnswerThe roots of the parabola must be 35 and 35 if the y axis is the axis of symetry. c is 185 because when an x value of 0 is subbed and a y value of 185 is subbed in c is denoted to be 185. That leave us to find a. Sub in 35, 0 zero for x and y values respectively and you will find a = 185/1225. Leaving us with the equation: And it seems to work fin when I sub values in I havn't looked into simplifying it.
