Danica Calvert & Melody Noel

Vertex From: -5/4(x–4)^2+5

Standard From: -5/4x^2+10x–15


Height of water leaving the spout:

Max of the parabola

Where the water hits the tray:


Max height of the water:

5 inches

Distance from spout to max height:

4 inches

Domain of the distance of water from spout:

The amount of time in seconds it takes the water to travel from the spout to the tray

Range of the water height:

It allows you to find the max height the water reaches
