After 11 seconds the hovercraft will land on ground

Step-by-step explanation:

Given function that shows the height of a hovercraft, Where,

x = number of second.

When the hovercraft land the ground,   By zero product property,

x – 11 = 0 or x + 3 = 0

⇒ x = 11 or x = -3 ( not possible ),

Hence, after 11 seconds the hovercraft will land on ground.
