# Real World Parabola

### By: Daniel Storie and Parker Smith

## Location- Aquatic center water fountain

## Object close up with the axes

## Object from a distance

## Vertex Form- Y=(x-4)^2 + 4

## Standard form- y= x^2 + 8x + 20

## What does the height of water leaving the spout represent?

This represents the y intercept.

## At the spot where the water hits the tray, what is the relevance to the equation?

This is the root or the x intercept of the equation.

## What is the maximum height of the water?

4 units.

## How far away from the spout is the water when it reaches this maximum height?

4 units away from the spout.

## What is the domain related to the distance the water is from the spout?

[0, 8]

## What is the range related to the height of the water?

[0,4]
