Compute the value of the discriminant and give the number of real solutions to the quadratic equation. Please see attached file for full problem description.

When a ball is thrown, its height in feet h after t seconds is given by the equation h = vt - 16t^2. where v is the initial upwards velocity in feet per second. If v = 9 feet per second, find all values of t for which h = 1. Do not round immediate steps. Round your answer to 2 decimals. If there is more than one ans

There are two cars. The sum of the average miles per gallon obtained by the two cards in a particular week is 60. The first car consumed 20 gallons during that week and the second car consumed 15 gallons, for a total of 1100 miles driven by the two cars combined. What was the average gas mileage obtained by each of the two ca

Please assist by showing how to solution is obtained. 12. The weekly demand model for a new toy is given by: N = -5p + 80 The weekly supply model for the same toy is: N = 3p + 40 For the models p is the price of the toy and N is the number of toys sold or supplied. Find the price at which supply and dema

There is credit remaining on a phone card in dollars that is a linear function of the total calling time in minutes. The funtion gives a line with a slope of -0.14. There is a $23.78 credit on the card after 27 minutes of calls. How much credit is there after only 20 minutes in dollars.

The credit remaining on a phone card in dollars is a linear function of the total time in minutes. When graphed, the function gives a line with a slope of -0.13. There is a credit or $24.94 remaining on the card after 38 minutes. How much credit will there be after 47 minutes. Can you show the work on how to solve this

4) (demand curve)The demand curve for a certain commodity is p=-.001q+32.5 a) At what price can 31,500 units of the commodity be sold at? b) What quanities are so large that many units of the commodity can't possibly be sold no matter how low the price... The hint they gave was to drop the price, make an inequality and solve f

A professor started a project with a group of students, 60% of whom were boys, due to some unavoidable reason, six girls couldn't show up, so the professor had to make some changes in the group. He admitted six boys. In doing so the percentage of boys in the project increased to 75%. Find the number of boys and girls involved in

I need assistance setting up equations for the following: 1. A 40-ounce can of cling peach sells for $2.80. At the same rate, what would a 10-ounce can sell for? 2. Two cars leave a town at the same time and travel in opposite directions. It seems that a family quarrel has erupted and the ladies have sped out of town. G

Minimizing Cost. A company uses the formula C(x)=0.02x^2 - 3.4x + 150 to model the unit cost in dollars for producing x stabilizer bars. For what number of bars is the unit cost at its minimum? What is the unit cost at that level of production?

Problem#1 A designer, attempting to arrange the characters of his artwork in the form of a square grid with equal number of rows and columns, found that 24 characters were left out. When he tried to add one more row and column, he found that he was short of 25 characters. Can you find the number of characters used by the des

(1) Prove that if |G|=1365, then G is not simple. (2) Assume that G is a nonabelian group of order 15. Prove that Z(G)=1. Use the fact that the group generated by "g" is less than or equal to C_G(g) for all "g" in G to show that there is at most one possible class equation for G.

Please develop a hypothetical scenario in a word document illustrating these concepts. Inflation: 1. If your salary today is $55,000 per year, what would you expect your salary to be in 20 years (rounded to the nearest thousand dollars) if you assume that inflation will continue at a constant rate of 6% over that time peri

1. The equation D=1.2√h gives the distance, D, in miles that a person can see to the horizon from a height, h, in feet. a. Solve this equation for h. b. Long's Peak in the Rocky Mountain National Park, is 14,255 feet in elevation. How far can you see to the horizon from the top of Long's Peak? Can you see Cheyenne

See the attachment. 1. Solve the equation for r. 2. Suppose that an object is 100 pounds when it is at sea level. Find the value of C that makes the equation true. (Sea level is 3,963 miles from the center of the earth.) 3. Use the value of C you found in the previous question to determine how much the object would wei

The period T (time in seconds for one complete cycle) of a simple pendulum is related to the length L (in feet) of the pendulum by the formula 8T^2=(3.14)^2L. If a child is on a swing with a 10 foot chain, then how long does it take to complete one cycle of the swing?
