Maria is erecting a statue on a triangular plot of land. She wants to put decorative stonework edging around the site. The length of one side of the plot of land is 25 feet. If the angles at the end of this side are 65° and 38°, find the length of stonework edging needed to enclose the site on which the statue is erected.

Draw the triangle shown below to illustrate the problem.Given:a=25 ft, ∠B=65°, ∠C=38°. Because angles in a triangle sum to 180°, therefore∠A = 180 – 65 – 38 = 77°. Apply the Law of Sines to find b and c.b/sin(B) = a/sin(A)b/sn(65°) = 25/sin(77°)b = [sin(65)/sin(77)]*25 = 23.254 ft c/sin(C) = a/sin(A)c/sin(38) …

A fireworks company has two types of rockets called Zinger 1 and Zinger 2. The polynomial -16t2 + 150t gives the height in feet of Zinger 1 at t seconds after launch. The polynomial -16t2 + 165t gives the height of Zinger 2 at t seconds after launch. If the rockets are launched at the same time and both explode 6 seconds after launch, how much higher is Zinger 2 than Zinger 1 when they explode?

The function H(t) = −16t2 + 48t + 12 shows the height H(t), in feet, of a cannon ball after t seconds. A second cannon ball moves in the air along a path represented by g(t) = 10 + 15.2t, where g(t) is the height, in feet, of the object from the ground at time t seconds. Part A: Create a table using integers 0 through 3 for the 2 functions. Between what 2 seconds is the solution to H(t) = g(t) located? How do you know? (6 points) Part B: Explain what the solution from Part A means in the context of the problem. (4 points)

Given two functions: h(t)=-16t^2+48t+12 and g(t)=10+15.2tA] The table of both functions from 0 to 3 will be:h(t)=-16t^2+48t+12t           0           1            2          3h(t)       12         44   …

99 POINTS! Make it good please. Read the excerpt below and answer the question. Before she [Momma] had quite arisen, she called our names and issued orders, and pushed her large feet into homemade slippers and across the bare lye-washed wooden floor to light the coal-oil lamp. In a paragraph of about 100 words, define “immediacy” and discuss how the excerpt is an example of immediacy.

Answered by answersmine AT 22/10/2019 – 03:50 AM The excerpt above had shown the example of immediacy because the excerpt above had shown the relationship of the person telling the story and the person who had acted. Where both of the character in the excerpt has shown the a close …

What type of imagery is missing in this poem? A Lady By Amy Lowell You are beautiful and faded Like an old opera tune Played upon a harpsichord; Or like the sun-flooded silks Of an eighteenth-century boudoir. In your eyes Smoulder the fallen roses of out-lived minutes, And the perfume of your soul Is vague and suffusing, With the pungence of sealed spice-jars. Your half-tones delight me, And I grow mad with gazing At your blent colours. My vigour is a new-minted penny, Which I cast at your feet. Gather it up from the dust, That its sparkle may amuse you
