 1 The length L (in feet) of runway needed for a small airplane to land is given by $L=0.1{x}^{2}-3x+22$ where x is the airplane’s speed (in feet per second). If a pilot is landing a small airplane on a runway 2000 feet long, what is the maximum speed at which the pilot can land? (4) The maximum landing speed is 59.7772 feet per second.

 2 Solve the system of equations: $\left\{\begin{array}{c}-{x}^{2}-4x+1\\ x+5\end{array}\right\$ (5) The solutions are $\left(-4,1\right)$ and $\left(-1,4\right)$.

 3 Convert to standard form: $y=2{\left(x+3\right)}^{2}+4$ (5)

$2{\left(x+3\right)}^{2}+4=2\left({x}^{2}+6x+9\right)+4=2{x}^{2}+12x+18+4=2{x}^{2}+12x+22$

 4 Convert to standard form: $y=\left(x+3\right)\left(x-4\right)$ (5)

$\left(x+3\right)\left(x-4\right)={x}^{2}+3x-4x-12={x}^{2}-x-12$
