21) f(x) = x2 - 8x + 11
22) f(x) = -x2 - 10x
23) f(x) = 2x2 + 24x - 7
24) f(x) = -5x2 + 30x + 2
Solve each of the following word problems. Round to tenths as appropriate.
25) The length of a rectangle is 8 cm less than three times its width. If the area of the
rectangle is 476 cm2, find the dimensions of the rectangle.
26) The longer leg of a right triangle is 6 units more than twice the shorter leg. If the
hypotenuse is 3 units longer than longer leg, find the dimensions of the right
triangle.
27) While standing on the observation deck of the Space Needle (which is 520 feet
above the ground), Stanley is debating whether or not to release his ice cream cone
on the unsuspecting crowd below. How long will it take the ice cream cone to hit the
ground if:
a)
he drops the cone?
