*arrow_forward*Sarah has read alound in class 3 more times than Joel. Sarah has read 9 times. Which equation repersents this situation?*arrow_forward*Fred flops into a pool from a platform 18.75 feet above water. His height above the water in feet x seconds into the flop is given by the expression – 5(x – .5)² + 20. How long will it take Fred to hit the water? (Hint: set the equation equal to 18.75 and solve the equation). seconds*arrow_forward* - Which equation has the same solution as x2 + 20x – 17 = 7?
