									Quadratic Functions…
  and their
applications!
  For a typical basketball shot, the ball’s
height (in feet) will be a function of time
in flight (in seconds), modeled by an
equation such as h = -16t2 +40 t +6.
 a) What is the maximum height of the ball?

  b) When will the shot reach the height of
 the basket? (10 feet)
 c) When will the ball hit the floor, if it
 missed the basket entirely?
   a) What is the maximum
      height of the ball?
 Put it in your calculator!
 Use your zooms and change   your
  window until you see the maximum.
 Find the maximum!


    Answer: The maximum
  height of the ball is 31 feet!
  b) When will the shot reach the
  height of the basket? (10 feet)
 Key    words to highlight:
 When (so we are looking for our x)
 Height of the basket (10 feet)

 Put   10 in for y2 and find the…
          INTERSECTION!

   Answer: 2.4 seconds!
c) When will the ball hit the floor, if
   it missed the basket entirely?
 What   do we put in for y2?
   y2 = 0
 Now    find the intersection!

  Answer: The ball will hit the
   floor after 2.64 seconds!
        Miss Bakewell (who loves to swim!) is putting in a
swimming pool next to her house. She wants to put a nice,
rectangular privacy fence around it, but she can only afford to pay
for 50 feet of fencing. If she does not need a fence on the part
adjacent to her house, what are the dimensions of the fence with
the largest area she could have for her pool?

                                   2x + y = 50
                                   y = 50 - 2x
                                   Area = x 50 – 2x
                                            y
                                      A = x(50 – 2x)
                                      A = 50x – 2x2
                                      Now graph it!

                                              Do we need the

         0                                      x value!

                                             thus y = 50 – 2(12.5)
                         Length                     y = 25

A farmer wants to build two rectangular
 pens of the same size next to a river so
 they are separated by one fence. If she
 has 240 meters of fencing and does not
 fence the side next to the river, what are
 the dimensions of the largest area
 enclosed? What is the largest area?
 Step 1: Draw a figure!


xm      xm      xm




         ym
   Step 2: Set up your equations!
Perimeter equation        3x + y = 240
Area equation                A = xy
Solve for y!               y = 240 – 3x
Substitute y into the
area equation             A = x(240 – 3x)
Distribute the x.          A = 240x – 3x2
               Now what type of function do we have????

                                                       So
                                                    graph it!
               Step 3: Graph it!
Remember: There are two questions in the problem.
        1. What are the dimensions of the largest area
        enclosed?
        2. What is the largest area?
So when we graph and find the maximum, are we looking for the x or y
for number 1?
                        x!
So when we graph and find the maximum, are we looking for the x or y
for number 2?
                        y!

        2. Enter your data in L1 and L2
        3. Look at the data you have entered. What is the
        temperature doing? Now let’s actually look at the STAT
        PLOT (Zoom 9).
        4. Which function that we’ve studied would best model
        the data?

 What is the r2 value?
        r2 = .927
  This tells us that 92.7%
of the time, the model is
a good predictor, and the
closer this value is to 1,
the closer the data is to
the model.
