Question

A skydiver is 760 meters above the ground when he opens his parachute. After opening the parachute, he descends at a constant speed of 17 meters per second.

Part A: What type of function would best model this situation?

Part B: Which of the following equations would best model this situation?

y = 760 – 17x

y=17 – 760x

-17x = 760

3x^2 – 17x + 760=0
