 Question 254211: The vertical height, h, in metres of a golf ball as it travels a horizontal distance, d metres, down the fairway, can be described using a quadratic function. A pro-golfer can drive the ball 300m down the fairway before it lands. If the ball's maximum height was 15m: - draw a sketch of the path of the golf ball - find the equation of the path of the golf ball - determine the two distances down the fairway when the ball is 10m above the ground. Give your answer to the nearest tenth of a metre. Click here to see answer by solver91311(16897)

 Question 255127: A parabola forms the top of a fencing panel. This parabola can be modeled by the graph of the function y=0.03125x^2-0.25x+4 where x and y are measured in feet and y represents the number of feet the parabola is above the ground. How far above the ground is the lowest point of the parabola formed by the fence? Do I start of the problem by using the formula x= -b/2a ? If so would it be --0.25/2(0.03125) ?
