Can you help me on like my last 6 questions?

- anonymous

i just computed first by quadratic formula, then plug in to calculator

- anonymous

ok shoot

- anonymous

pleaseeeeee? u dont have to.. but i would like it!

- anonymous

i am ready, lets do it.

Solve, using the square root method: 5x2 = 60. Round the solution to the nearest tenth.
A. {3.5, -3.5}
B. {7.7, -7.7}
C. {3.5}
D. No real solution

- anonymous

(: So generous!! :D

- anonymous

3.5, -3.5

Okay next one
Solve using the square root method. Round to the nearest tenth if necessary.
x2 + 15 =0
A. {3.9}
B. {3.9, -3.9}
C. {7.5, -7.5}
D. no real solution

- anonymous

no real solution since
\[x^2=-15\] has no real answer

- anonymous

4 to go

OKay so D
Next one
Which number completes the perfect square trinomial?
x2 + 20x + ?
A. 40
B. 100
C. 25
D. 80

- anonymous

100

- anonymous

(:

- anonymous

half of 20 is 10, 10 squared is 100

Okay (:
Use the quadratic formula to solve the problem.
A soccer player throws the ball onto the field from the sideline. An equation modeling the ball's flight is h = -16t2 + 18t + 2. In how many seconds will the ball reach the ground?
A. in about 2 seconds
B. in about 1.2 seconds
C. in about 1.8 seconds
D. Cannot be determined

- anonymous

set
\[-16t^2+18t+2=0\]
solve for t

- anonymous

B

- anonymous

about 1.2

- anonymous

Haha yea alright (: Thanks soooo much btw (:
Next..
Which of the following shows the square completed in the this equation?
x2 + 3x - 5 = 0
A. (x + 9)2 = 14
B. (x - 3)2 = 8
C. (x + 1.5)2 = 7.25

- anonymous

this is nonsense by the way unless he throws it straight up in the air. if he throws it out on the field equation makes no sense

- anonymous

C

- anonymous

Yea... thats true!!

- anonymous

one more?
