AlgebraQ&A LibraryQuadratic equations are used for many applications. The formula to solve quadratic equations can be used to solve all quadratic equations, even those that cannot be factored. A common application of quadratic equations is the height of a thrown object over time, which takes the earth's gravity and the velocity of the throw into account. For example, if someone throws a ball down from a height of 100 meters, the ball's distance from the ground can be modeled by the equation: d = − 9.8 t 2 − 15 t + 100 where t is the time in seconds and d is the distance in meters. At what time (t) will the ball hit the ground? (Hint: what does this mean for d=distance?) You will get two answers. Do both make sense? (Explain in detail Why or Why not).Start your trial now!

- At what time (t) will the ball hit the ground? (Hint: what does this mean for d=distance?)
- You will get two answers. Do both make sense? (Explain in detail Why or Why not).
