Initial upward speed = 7.61 m/s

Final upward speed (at the point of maximum height) = 0

Time to reach maximum height = (7.61) / (9.8) = 0.77653 second

Average speed during that time = 1/2 ( 7.61 + 0) = 3.805 m/s

Height = 3.805 x 0.77653 = 2.9547 meters (rounded) = about 9.7 feet

Doesn't seem like much of a height for a strong toss; but the math looks OK.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials
