Vertex form

f(x)= -3.8 (x+1.93)^2 + 3.05

Standard form

f(x)= x^2 + 3.86x + 6.77

Question answers

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

It represents the initial height

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

f(x) = 0

What is the maximum height of the water?

The vertex (-1.93 , 3.05)

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


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

-4.76 less than or equal to X less than or equal to 0

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

0 less than or equal to Y less than or equal to 3.05
