Question

# In a mathematical problem, Samuel was provided with the values of s, u, and a and the value of t was asked to be calculated. Samuel substituted those values into the second equation of motion and got a quadratic equation in t as a result. He thought of plotting a graph taking t in the x-axis. How will the graph look like?

- Straight line
- Parabola
- Circle
- Random

Hint:

### Basic Graphs

## The correct answer is: Parabola

- The graph of a Quadratic equation is a parabola.
