Dr. Peabody shot a rocket off the roof of a 42-foot tall building. After three seconds, the rocket reached its highest point of 96 feet.

Model this situation with a quadratic function, and use the graph to determine how many seconds it will take the rocket to hit the ground?

Wendy D.

Start by sketching the path of the rocket. The horizontal is time in seconds. The vertical axis is distance from the ground in feet. HINT: First plot point (0,42).
