How many parabolas can you fit? Write the functions for each one

A room with dimensions 20 feet by 26 feet is to be used to host a meeting. Under the CDC guidelines, we need to design the seats to be six feet apart. Janet suggested to put the attendees on a parabola-like setting, with the zeros of the function on one edge of the room. The vertices of the parabolas should also be 6 feet apart.


How many parabolas can you fit? Write the functions for each one.

Why non a parabola instead of a grid? Are more then one parabola used at a time? How do the seats get 6-feet apart on the parabola?
