• The area of the opening of a rectangular window is to be 306 square centimeters. If the length exceeds the width by 1 centimeter, what are the dimensions? (Page 122 #90) Area = Length X width 306 = (w + 1)w • An object is propelled vertically upward with an initial velocity of 20 meters per second. The distance s of the object from the ground is s = -5 t 2 + 20 t. (Page 123 #100) (a) When will the object be 15 meters above the ground? 15 = -5 t 2 + 20 t (b) When will it strike the ground? 0 = -5 t 2 + 20 t (c) When will object reach a height of 100 meters? 100 = -5 t 2 + 20 t 20
