Living on the planet earth.

At night when we look up the sky, we see countless number of stars.These stars are called suns. The stars are miles apart from each other, they are so far that it is hard to reckon the distance. Light year is a unit of measurement used to measure the distance from the stars. Light travels at the rate of 186,000 miles per second, or 6 million million miles per year. Therefore, the light we see from the stars has taken two years to reach us.
The sun is a star. In fact, it is one of the minor stars-smaller, and giving out less light and heat than many of the others. The sun appears brighter & bigger because we are near it, it’s properties during the day dwarfs other stars.
The sun is of more importance compared to other stars. It is our main source of light & heat, although on very clear nights, even when there is no moon, the stars light our way.
The nearest star to the sun is about 25,000,000,000,000 miles or just over 4 light years away from it.
The solar system; the sun moves through space at a terrific rate. A number of other bodies move in circles round the sun and travel in space with it. These bodies are called planets, and they are kept in their paths round the sun (called their orbits) by the attraction which the sun exerts on them.
The sun can be taught of as a great ball of fire, giving out heat & light, with a diameter of over 800,000 miles. There are nine major planets and some hundreds of very tiny ones. The earth is a planet. It is 8,000 miles in diameter, it is about 93 million miles from the sun. It completes a circle round the sun in just over 365 days.
The outermost planet Pluto is 3,670 million miles from the sun. It takes 248 years to make one journey right round the sun. The other planets are Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn Neptune, Uranus and other smaller bodies called satellites. The planets, just like our earth has no light of it’s own.
Time zones; time zone occurs when a whole stretch of land keeps to one time. In U.S.A there are five time zones, in Australia three.
Our God is powerful.

Quadratic equations

Solving Quadratic Equations by the Quadratic Formula

The Quadratic Formula
Given the problemSolve ax2 + bx + c = 0,the solutions are

The quadratic formula is easily derived by completing the square to solve the equation ax2 + bx + c = 0.

Using the Quadratic Formula
  1. Write the given quadratic equation in standard form ax2 + bx + c = 0.
  2. Determine the numerical values for a, b, and c.
  3. Substitute the values for a, b, and c into the quadratic formula.
  4. Evaluate the formula to obtain the solutions.

The Discriminant, b2 – 4ac
The discriminant tells how many different values will be solutions.
If b2 – 4ac > 0,
the quadratic equation has 2 distinct real number solutions.
If b2 – 4ac = 0,
the quadratic equation has a single real number solution (repeated twice).
If b2 – 4ac < 0,
the quadratic equation has no real number solutions, it has 2 complex solutions.
