A fireworks company has two types of rockets called
Zinger 1 and Zinger 2. The polynomial 16t2+150t gives the
height in feet of Zinger 1 at t seconds after
launch. The polynomial: 16t2 + 165t gives the
height of Zinger 2 at t seconds after launch. If
the rockets are launched at the same time and both
explode 6 seconds after launch, how much higher is
Zinger 2 than Zinger 1 when they explode? Explain your answer to me so I could understand.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0#4. Plug t = 6 into the two formulas. Zinger 1: 16 * t^2 + 150 * t = 16 * 6^2 + 150 * 6 = Zinger 2: 16 * t^2 + 165 * t = 16 * 6^2 + 165 * 6 =

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2never mind check this one distance that Z1 travels = 16(6)^2+150(6) distance that Z2 travels = 16(6)^2 + 165(6) distance between them = 16(6)^2 + 165(6)  (16(6)^2+150(6)) = 90

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2are you sure I did it again... distance that Z1 travels = 16(6)^2+150(6) distance that Z2 travels = 16(6)^2 + 165(6) distance between them = 16(6)^2 + 165(6)  (16(6)^2+150(6)) = 90

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Substituting the value t = 6 in the first equation gives: (16 * 36) + (165 * 6) = 576 + 990 = 414
