# Solving Problems With Quadratic Functions A border of flowers are planted around the garden so that the area of the flowers is exactly one half the area of the field. The equation area of the garden will be Area = (30 – 2x)(40 – 2x) Area needs to be ½ the area of the field so will be 600m2 600 = (30 – 2x)(40 – 2x) 600 = 1200 – 140x – 4x2 4x2 140x – 600 = 0 (divide by 4) x2 35x – 150 = 0 (factor) (x 30)(x 5) = 0 so x = -30 or x= 5 since distance is positive x = 5. Give students problems that allow for multiple points of entry and let them use lots of time and technology to develop their own methods to solve them--after several days, you will be excited to see all the different methods they come up with!So we need to figure out at which times does h equal 0. And so we have 8t squared minus 10t minus 25 is equal to 0. And we could complete this square here, or we can just apply the quadratic formula, which is derived from completing the square. Well, that's just positive 100, minus 4 times a, which is 8, times c, which is negative 25. Now, we have to remember, we're trying to find a time.

A ball is shot into the air from the edge of a building, 50 feet above the ground. The equation h-- and I'm guessing h is for height-- is equal to negative 16t squared plus 20t plus 50 can be used to model the height of the ball after t seconds.

And I think in this problem they just want us to accept this formula, although we do derive formulas like this and show why it works for this type of problem in the Khan Academy physics playlist.

All quadratic equations can be put in standard form, and any equation that can be put in standard form is a quadratic equation.

In other words, the standard form represents all quadratic equations.

MPM2D Unit 3 – Quadratic Applications Solving problems with Quadratic Relations. Type II - Projectile Motion problems where you are given the zeros Jon fires a toy rocket into the air from the ground. Substitute in x = 5 y = -1.25(5)(5- 10) y = 31.25 Therefore the greatest height is 31.25 m MPM2D Unit 3 – Quadratic Applications Type III - Revenue Problems A restaurant determines that each 10 cent increase in the price of a salad results in 25 fewer salads being sold.

Sample types of problems Type I - Projectile Motion problems where you are given the equation. The rocket is in the air for 10 s before it falls to the ground. The usual price for a salad is .00 and the restaurant sells 300 salads each day.For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.*Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs.So you divide the left hand side by negative 2, you still get a 0. And so this tells us that the only root that should work is 5/2. I think they really just want us to apply the quadratic formula to this modeling situation.

For a function that models a relationship between two quantities, interpret key features of graphs and tables in terms of the quantities, and sketch graphs showing key features given a verbal description of the relationship.

Key features include: intercepts; intervals where the function is increasing, decreasing, positive, or negative; relative maximums and minimums; symmetries; end behavior; and periodicity.*Identify the effect on the graph of replacing f(x) by f(x) k, k f(x), f(kx), and f(x k) for specific values of k (both positive and negative); find the value of k given the graphs.

So you divide the left hand side by negative 2, you still get a 0. And so this tells us that the only root that should work is 5/2. I think they really just want us to apply the quadratic formula to this modeling situation.
