 Question 1760: I need to come up with the general equation of a quadratic function for the following word problem. Can you help me get started please? A large awning is being designed for a hotel entrance and drive. The roof is to be a section of a parabola, with the vertex attached to the hotel wall 16 feet abve the ground, and supported by 10 foot wall posts that are 12 feet away from the hotel wall. Come up with a general eqaution of a quadratic function that would model the roof of the awning. Thanks for ANY help. I'm completely stuck on how to go about this problem algebraically.
