Red Bird

1. What is the maximum height the bird flew?

The maximum height was 18 yards


2. What was the total distance the bird flew?

The total distance was 28 yards. I subtracted 10 from 38 (which were the roots), and got 28.


3. Axis of Symmetry is x=24


4. Vertex is 24,18


5. Roots are (10,0) and (38,0)

Yellow Bird

1. The maximum height for this bird was 25 yards


2. The total distance it traveled was 10. I subtracted 2 from 12 (which were the roots), and got 10


3. The Axis of Symmetry equation is x=7.


4. The vertex is (7,25)


5.The roots are (2,0) and (12,0)

Blue Bird

1. The maximum height for the blue bird appears to be about 12.5 yards because it is in the middle of 10 and 15 on the y-axis


2. The total distance for the blue bird is 26 because the first x-intercept is at the origin and the second is at x=26.


3. The axis of symmetry appears to be x=13


4. The vertex is approximately (13, 12.5)


5. The roots are (0,0) and (0,26)

Black Bird

1. The maximum height of the black bird is 32 yards


2. The total distance it traveled was 16 yards because if you subtract the roots (8 and 24), you get 16.


3. The equation for the axis of symmetry is x=16


4. The vertex is (16,32)


5. The roots are (8,0) and (24,0).

All Birds and Pigs

All of the birds are indicated by the color of their path


The King Pig, which was located at (21,19.5), was in the path and hit by the BLACK BIRD.


The Mustache Pig, which was located at (9,21), was in the path and hit by the YELLOW BIRD.


The Black Bird flew the highest out of all the birds.


The red bird flew the furthest out of all the birds
