The profile of a dam is modeled by the equation y = 24 (StartFraction x Over 10 EndFraction) squared, where x represents horizontal distance and y represents height, both in meters. Review the diagram of the dam.

On a coordinate plane, a curve goes up from (0, 0) to point z. A horizontal line continues from z. y = 24 (StartFraction x Over 10 EndFraction) squared

Point Z is at a horizontal distance of 15 meters from the left-most point of the dam. What is the height of the dam at point Z?

24 meters
36 meters
54 meters
72 meters
