Therefore the equation of this relation is y = 3/500(x+50)(x-50)
Now the problem is, I'm not sure how to find the time. Do I substitute 20m into the above equation? Also, what units would the time be in?
20 meters from the hole means that it is 30 meters from the origin. so you plug in either x=30 or x=-30, depending on which end the hole is. but the answer should be the same here (the y-coordinates are equal at x=30 and x=-30).
