2 SIMPLIFYING SQUARE ROOTS In cases where you need to take the square root of a fraction whose numerator and denominator are perfect squares, the radical can be written as a fraction. For example, Î } 16 } can be written 25 as } 4 because 5 1 } } E XAMPLE 2 Take square roots of a fraction Solve 4z Solution 4z Write original equation. z } 4 Divide each side by 4. z 56Î } 9 }4 z 56 3 } 2 Take square roots of each side.

8 LESSON 10.4 Using ALTERNATIVE METHODS Another Way to Solve Example 5, page 654 MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS In Example 5 on page 654, you saw how to solve a problem about a dropped table-tennis ball by using a square root. You can also solve the problem by using factoring or by using a table. P ROBLEM SPORTS EVENT During an ice hockey game, a remote-controlled blimp flies above the crowd and drops a numbered table-tennis ball. The number on the ball corresponds to a prize. Use the information in the diagram to find the amount of time that the ball is in the air. 45 ft 17 ft Not drawn to scale M ETHOD 1 Using Factoring One alternative approach is to use factoring. STEP 1 Write an equation for the height h (in feet) of the ball as a function of time t (in seconds) after it is dropped using the vertical motion model. h 5216t 2 1 vt 1 s Vertical motion model h 5216t 2 1 0t 1 45 Substitute 0 for v and 45 for s. STEP 2 Substitute 17 for h to find the time it takes the ball to reach a height of 17 feet. Then write the equation so that 0 is on one side t Substitute 17 for h t Subtract 17 from each side. USE AN APPROXIMATION By replacing 28 with 25, you will obtain an answer that is an approximation of the amount of time that the ball is in the air. STEP 3 Solve the equation by factoring. Replace 28 with the closest perfect square, 25, so that the right side of the equation is factorable as a difference of two squares t Use 25 as an approximation for (16t ) Factor out (4t 2 5)(4t 1 5) Difference of two squares pattern 4t or 4t Zero-product property t 5 5 } 4 or t 52 5 } 4 Solve for t. c The ball is in the air about 5 } 4, or 1.25, seconds.
