Question

# The suspension cables from the Golden gate bridge’s towers are farther above the roadway near the towers and closer to the roadway near the middle of the bridge. You can figure out your distance from middle of the bridge, x, in feet, and height of the suspension cable, y, in feet, at your position by using the equation x = About how far is the cable from roadway when you are 200 ft from middle of the bridge

Hint:

### Rearrange the equation and then solve for y.

## The correct answer is: 224.48

### Complete step by step solution:

Here we have the equation to be x =

Where, x is the distance from middle of the bridge and y is the height of the

suspension cable.

Here given that x = 200 ft

On rearranging the equation, we have

On squaring both the sides, we get 4.47999556 = y - 220

cable is 224.48 ft from the roadway when you are 200 ft from the middle of the bridge.

A second-degree quadratic equation is an algebraic equation in x. **Ax² + bx + c = 0**, where 'x' is the variable, 'a' and 'b' are the coefficients, and 'c' is the constant term, is the quadratic equation in its standard form. A non-zero term (a ≠ 0) for the coefficient of x² is a prerequisite for an equation to be a quadratic equation. The x² term is written first, then the x term, and finally, the constant term is written when constructing a quadratic equation in standard form. In most cases, the numerical values of a, b, and c are not expressed as decimals or fractions but are written as integral values. There are a maximum of two solutions for x in the second-degree quadratic equations. These two solutions for x are referred to as the quadratic equations' roots and are given the designations (α, β). There are several ways to present the quadratic equations: (x - 1)(x + 2) = 0, 5x(x + 3) = 12x, x³ = x(x² + x - 3), where -x²= -3x + 1. Before carrying out any additional procedures, these equations are to be translated into the quadratic equation's standard form.
