In this blog post, the Desmos activity required that I interact with a racing car app. This racing car app deals with roots and finding which one would pass through the orange cones and to the finish line without going off track. I found it very difficult to find a formula that could accomplish this task. This car racing app had 4 different formulas and locations of the orange cones. The first formula was easy to manipulate in order to this helped you steer the car around the orange cones. I honestly found it really hard to make a formula that goes through the cones and stays on track.
As you can see for the last track with three orange cones I was unable to find a root that stays on track or meets to the finish line. I was able to make it pass through all the orange cones. I am just not sure how to make it stay on track and make it to the finish line.
Can anyone figure out what I could have done differently to make the formula meet the requirements?
