Bill and Ben are on a bridge, timing how long it takes stones they have dropped to hit the water below. A quadratic relation can be used to determine the distance, D, in metres, that ta stone will fall in the time, t, in seconds after it is realeased. In this relation, a = -0.5g, where g is acceleration due to gravity, which is approximately 9.8 m/s^{2} on Earth. Ben starts a timer when Bill releases a stone, and he stops the timer when the stone hits the water below. The mean time of serveral trials is 3 s.

a) Determine a quadratic function that models the falling stones.

b) How high above the water are Bill and Ben? Explain your answer.

c) On Saturn's moon, Titan, the value of g is 1.35 m/s^{2. } Suppose that Bill and Ben are astronauts and they are standing at the top of a cliff on Titan. If they record the time for a stone to fall from their hands to the bottom of the cliff as 3 s, how high is the cliff, to the nearest hundreth of a metre?

A jet skier leaves a dock at 8 a.m. and travels due west at 36 km/h. A second jet skier leaves the same dock 10 min later and travels due south at 44 km/h. At what time of day, to the nearest minute, will the two jet skis be 20 km apart?

Troy has written a proof showing that the diagonals of a parallelogram are equal in length. The diagonals of a parallelogram are not necessarily equal so Troy must have made an error. Identify and explain his error.

Statement | Justification

AB = ED | Opposite sides of parallelogram

BAE = AED | Alternate interior angles

ABD = BDE | Alternate interoir angles

ABC = EDC | ASA

BC = EC | Corresponding sides of congruent angles

AC = DC | Corresponding sides of congruent angles

AE = BD | AC + CE = DC + CB

Larry likes skeet shooting, where a clay disc is shot into the air and the participant tries to shoot it as it flies through the air. The discs are released from a firing mechanism that sits at ground level and shoots the disc on average a horizontal distance of 120m on a parabolic path. The average maximum height a disc reaches is 40m.

sketch a diagram that represents it with a equation that represents the flight of the clay disc.

Determine the domain and range of the quadratic equation.
