Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Systems of Equations, Segment 3: Ballistic Missiles

This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: A ballistic missile shield allows you to shoot incoming missiles out of the sky. Mathematically, this is an example of a linear-quadratic system. Students graph such a system and find the points of intersection between a line and a parabola.
