    Maximum height. If a baseball is projected upward from ground level with an initial velocity of 64 fcct per second, then its height is a function of time, given by s(t) = ? 16t2 + 64t. Graph this function for 0 < t < 4. What is the maximum height reached by the ball'?

    Maximum height. If a soccer ball is kicked straight up with an initial velocity of 32 feet per second, then its height above the earth is a function of time given by s(t) = -16t2 + 32t. Graph this function for 0 < t < 2. What is the maximum height reached by this ball'?'

    Minimum cost. It costs Acme Manufacturing C dollars per hour to operate its golf ball division. An analyst has determined that C is related to the number of golf balls produced per hour, x, by the equation C = 0.009x2 ? 1.8x + 100. What number of halls per hour should Acme produce to minimize the cost per hour of manufacturing these golf balls?
