A Drag Racer accelerates at a uniform rate from it's starting point. It travels the last 1/4 of the distance from the starting point to the finish line in 3 seconds. How long did it take to travel the entire distance from starting point to finish line? This uses the Quadradic Formula: A*X*X + B*X + C = 0 => X = (B + SqRt(B*B  4*A*C))/(2*A) => X = (B  SqRt(B*B  4*A*C))/(2*A) 
A helium baloon carrying a baseball goes up to a height h feet where it pops and releases the ball. The ball travels the last 3000 feet in 5 seconds. Assume no friction and acceleration due to gravity to be 32 ft/sec/sec. How high was the ball when it dropped?
