In my previous post I discussed the Brady and Manning football problem, you can visit it here:

I gave you some time to think about how to change the equations so that the balls wouldn’t go so high. They went too high because the coefficients in front of x^{2}, x and the number by itself were too large. So by multiplying each term by 0.01 I was able to get the height down to 4 yards vs. 400 yards. More reasonable. The new equations are:

y = -0.01x^{2} + 1.8x – 77 (Brady)

y = -0.01x^{2} + 1.4x – 45 (Manning)
