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
