Question

A toy company is releasing a new catapult for water balloons that launches them at 9.8 meters per second from a stand 0.6 meters tall. The function f(x) = −4.9×2 + 9.8x + 0.6 describes the path of the water balloon, where x is the amount of time since the launch. While the mathematical range is y ≤ 5.5, how does the reasonable range compare?

Answer:reasonable range: 0 ≤ y ≤ 5.5

Step-by-step explanation:Unless the balloons are being launched from a building or the edge of a cliff, we generally expect f(x) ≥ 0. This limits the “reasonable range” to …

0 ≤ y ≤ 5.5
