Q6d

A firecracker is fired from the ground. The height of the firecracker at a given time is modelled by the function \displaystyle h(t)=-5 t^{2}+50 t , where \displaystyle h(t)  is the height in metres and \displaystyle t  is time in seconds. When will the firecracker reach a height of \displaystyle 45 \mathrm{~m}  ?

Q7

The population of a city, \displaystyle P(t) , is given by the function \displaystyle P(t)=14 t^{2}+820 t+42000 , where \displaystyle t  is time in years. Note: \displaystyle t=0  corresponds to the year 2000 .

a) When will the population reach 56224 ? Provide your reasoning.

b) What will the population be in 2035 ? Provide your reasoning.

Q8

Fred wants to install a wooden deck around his rectangular swimming pool. The function

\displaystyle C(x)=120 x^{2}+1800 x+5400  represents the cost of installation, where \displaystyle x  is the width of the deck in metres and \displaystyle C(x)  is the cost in dollars. What will the width be if Fred spends \displaystyle \\$ 9480  for the deck? Here is Steve's solution.

\displaystyle [0

I used a graphing calculator to solve this problem. I entered \displaystyle 120 x^{2}+1800 x+5400  into \displaystyle Y 1  and 9480 into \displaystyle Y 2  to see where they intersect. They intersect at two places: \displaystyle x=2  and \displaystyle x=-17 . Since both answers must be positive, use \displaystyle x=2  and \displaystyle x=17 . Because you will get more deck with a higher number, use only \displaystyle x=17 .

Do you agree with his reasoning? Why or

why not?
