Pre AP and GT Precalculus
(this is the equation for the height of an object with an initial velocity of 800 mps as it returns to earth)
y’ = 2x + 5
2x + 5 = 0 → x = −2.5
x = −2.5 → y = (−2.5)2 + 5(−2.5) − 2 = − 8.25
Vertex is (−2.5, −8.25)
If a*b*c=0 then a=0, b=0, or c=0
has four total roots (2 double roots).
What is p+q?
