for  x-­‐intercepts…?  

Now  what  are  going  to  do....?  
Well,  if  REAL  numbers  won’t  give  us  an  answer,  it’s  time  for...  
Imaginary  numbers!

The  Quadratic  Formula  can  be  used  to  solve  any  quadratic  
equation.    It  can  be  used  instead  of  factoring  or  square  roots.  

Use  the  quadratic  formula  to  solve.    Pay  attention  to  the  number  
inside  the  radical  and  how  it  is  related  to  the  types  (and  number)  of  
solutions  you  get.

A  juggler  throws  a  ball  into  the  air  at  an  
initial  height  of  4  feet  with  an  initial  
vertical  velocity  of  40  ft/sec.    If  the  juggler  
catches  the  ball  again  at  a  height  of  3  feet,  
how  long  was  the  ball  in  the  air?  

At  what  time  is  the  ball  at  its  maximum  
height?
