(iii) 9m above the ground, after .9min and 5.2 mins.

(iv)How long is it 5m above the ground. From .5 min to 5.5min.

Example 2

The formula for the height, Y metres, of a ball above the ground level, x seconds after it is fired vertically into the air, is given by Y= 35x – 5x².

Use your graph to estimate in domain 0 ≤ x ≤ 4

(i) Maximum height reached by the ball.

(ii)Height of the bal...
