Try This Solve. Give exact solutions. Then approximate the solution to the nearest hundredth.

9
Try This Solve. Give exact solutions. Then approximate the solution to the nearest hundredth. We need to get x by itself. Add 19 to both sides Divide by 5 Square root both sides

Try This Solve

13
Try This Solve Divide by 4 Square root both sides Subtract 2 from both sides Solve

Example 3 A rescue helicopter hovering 68 feet above a boat in distress drops a life raft. The height in feet of the raft above the water can be modeled by, where t is the time in seconds after it is dropped. After how many seconds will the raft dropped from the helicopter hit the water?

Example 3 A rescue helicopter hovering 68 feet above a boat in distress drops a life raft. The height in feet of the raft above the water can be modeled by, where t is the time in seconds after it is dropped. After how many seconds will the raft dropped from the helicopter hit the water? What are they asking us in terms of our equation?

The height in feet of the raft above the water can be modeled by, where t is the time in seconds after it is dropped. After how many seconds will the raft dropped from the helicopter hit the water? What are they asking us in terms of our equation? They are asking when is the height of the raft zero.
