# Is Chris Gayle batting?

In a T20 international cricket match, the team batting first needs a six to cross the 200-run mark. An explosive batsman faces an equally aggressive fast bowler. The bowler bowls the ball. The batsman hits the ball with the speed equal to a root of the equation:

$0.142x^4 - 10x^3 + 217.857x^2 - 1500x$

If the stand in where the ball landed has benches of width 1 meter and height 1 meter, starting from 110 meters from the crease, find out on which bench would it land. If you are sitting on the 5th bench, will a potato grow on your head?

Details and Assumptions:

• Air drag is negligible.

• Angle of projection is 0.925 radian.

• Height at which the ball was hit is 1 meter.
