Time(seconds) .75 | 1.5 | 2 | 2.25 | 2.75 | 3.5
Height(feet) 108 | 119 | 116| 112 | 97 | 59

1. What type of function best models this data
linear exponential quadratic or other

2. Use a graphing calculator to perform a regression for the best fit equation. Write the resulting equation below, rounding to the nearest hundredth.
