FAN AND MEDAL TO WHOEVER CAN HELP ME BEST
Can someone walk me through this..
A sandbag was thrown downward from a building. The function f(t) = 16t^2  32t + 384 shows the height f(t), in feet, of the sandbag after t seconds:
Part A: Factor the function f(t) and use the factors to interpret the meaning of the xintercept of the function. (4 points)
Part B: Complete the square of the expression for f(x) to determine the vertex of the graph of f(x). Would this be a maximum or minimum on the graph? (4 points)
Part C: Use your answer in part B to determine the axis of symmetry for f(x)? (2 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.016 is a common factor so we can pull it out. f(t) = 16(t² + 2t  24) Can you factor from here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You don't need to do it by grouping. This is where you look for 2 numbers that add up to 2 and multiply to 24. Then you put them in separate parentheses with "t"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is Part A (t4) (t+6) if it is what does it mean in terms of the xintercepts??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A. The factors are (t  4) (t + 6), the xintercepts represents the amount of time (seconds) it took for the sandbag to hit the ground.
