Your friend is helping to raise money for a local charity by participating in a cartwheel-a-thon. Your
friend is 70 inches tall with your friend’s arms raised in the air. Your friend is able to complete a
cartwheel in 15 seconds. The charity sponsor supplies a wristband to each participant to assist in
counting the number of cartwheels completed. The wristband is 4 inches from the end of your friend’s
arm. Write a model for the height h (in inches) of the wristband as a function of the time (in minutes)
given that the wristband is at the highest point when + = 0.
