## anonymous 5 years ago If a pro basketball player has a vertical leap of about 35 inches, what is his hang time? Use the hang-time function V=48T^2

1. anonymous

what does V stand for in the formula?

2. anonymous

I think vertical? Not sure..this week in class I have been very confused....

3. anonymous

if it's the vertical distance, then substitute it , 35=48T^2.

4. anonymous

$35=48T^2$$T=\sqrt{35/48}$ T=.8539 seconds

5. anonymous

yep, that may be right. but what if V turns out to be VELOCITY, though not so likely?

6. anonymous

It is for vertical leaps

I just tried it and it kicked back saying it was wrong as well...cause my answer was close to that as well

10. anonymous

the V means vertical leaps in minutes

11. anonymous

I mean inches

$\sqrt{9x+67}=x+5$

x = 6
