Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, maybe you can help me with this one. I need to make this problem into decimal places. The square root of 25/48=T, I am trying to find the hang time of a basketball player from the vertical leap 25 inches, the function is V=48T^2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No. Perhaps you need to enter it in a different order. Calculators vary. So try this: Push the square root key and then enter (25 divided by 48) equals

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can check my answer. Just multiply .721687836 by itself and see if you get the same thing as when you divide 25 by 48
