Esmy

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.

    #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 =

    never 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

    are 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

    Substituting the value t = 6 in the first equation gives: (-16 * 36) + (165 * 6) = -576 + 990 = 414
