## Completing the Square

Form G

Rewrite each equation in vertex form.

28. y = x2 6x + 4 29. y = x2 + 14x + 50

30. y = 3x2 + 8x + 2 31. y = 2x2 + 6x 2

Find the value of k that would make the left side of each equation a perfect square trinomial.

32. x2 + kx + 196 = 0 33. 64x2 kx + 1 = 0

34. x2 kx + 16 = 0 35. 4x2 kx + 9 = 0

36. 16x2 + kx + 9 = 0 37. 38. The quadratic function d = t2 + 4t + 33 models the depth of water in a flood channel after a rainstorm. The time in hours after it stops raining is t and d is the depth of the water in feet.

1. Solve the equation t2 + 4t + 33 = 0.

2. Approximate the positive solution found in part (a) to two decimal places.

3. Interpret the answer to part (b) in terms of the problem.

39. While in orbit, a space scientist measures the pressure inside a container as it is being heated and then cooled. She records the information and discovers the pressure p, in pounds per square inch, is related to the time t in minutes after the experiment begins according to the equation p = 0.2t2 + 1.6t.

1. Complete the square in the expression 0.2t2 + 1.6t.

2. Rewrite the equation for p in vertex form.

3. What is a reasonable domain for this function? Explain.

4. When does the maximum pressure occur? What is the maximum pressure?
