this, and also be able to do word problems involving finding the vertex of a
parabola.

25. Find the vertex of the graph of the following quadratic equation.

26. In Lawrence, Kansas, there is a city ordinance stating
that as you enter the city, you must fire your

gun into the air to alert the inhabitants of your presence. Cletus drives into
Lawrence and fires his

rifle into the air. The bullet follows a trajectory given by the following
equation:

Where h is the height in feet above the ground, and t is
the time (in seconds) after Cletus fires his

gun. What is the maximum height the bullet reaches? How many seconds after
Cletus fires his gun

will the bullet reach the ground?

this profit? If

the Weber Vacuum Company sells enough vacuums, they will make no profit. How
many vacuums do

they need to sell for this to occur?
