Sub part a) Rocket splashes into ocean Height will be zero 4.9t2+358t+129=0 For a quadratic equation ax2+bx+c=0, The solutions are, x=b±(b24ac)2a By substituting a=4.9,b=358,c=129
t=0.36,73.42 Since time cannot be negative. Hence the rocket splashes down into ocean after 73.42 seconds (rounded to two decimals). Sub part b) The rocket reaches to peak when the first derivative of the height equation is zero. h(t)=0
9.8t+358=0 Formula : derivative of xn=nxn1
t=3589.8=36.53 (Rounded to two decimals) h(36.53)=9.8(36.53)+358
=357.994+358
h(36.53)>0
h(t) has its peak value at t=36.53 seconds and it's value is, h(36.53)=4.9(36.53)2+358(36.53)+129
=6538.76+13077.74+129
= 6,667.98 Hence the peak value of rocket is at 36.53 seconds and the height is 6667.98 meters.

According to a study by Dr. John McDougall of his live-in weight loss program at St. Helena Hospital, the people who follow his program lose between 6 and 15 pounds a month until they approach trim body weight. Let's suppose that the weight loss is uniformly distributed. We are interested in the weight loss of a randomly selected individual following the program for one month. Give the distribution of X. Enter an exact number as an integer, fraction, or decimal.f(x)= where X.μ=σ=. Find the probability that the individual lost more than 8 pounds in a month.Suppose it is known that the individual lost more than 9 pounds in a month. Find the probability that he lost less than 13 pounds in the month.
