Hello All,

I am struggling with word problems in quadratic equations. I am unable to convert the word data into a right equation. Any tips/suggestions?

Study tip: for quadratics in the PS, you should mainly focus on practicing factoring. If you ever have to use the quadratic equation, you are most likely taking an inefficient approach.
