1. When dealing with the initial height of the ball, what is happening when x = 0?

Is it that the ball has not yet traveled any distance?

2. What are the possible values for y when x = 0?

I know only the constant term would be left. So would I be correct in saying "the constant term" or how do I better say it?

3. Regarding the maximum height of the ball: knowing some values of y are not reasonable, how does that affect choosing a window for the graph?

y then is c, the initial height. That is the only possible value for y

As far as question 3, I would choose a horizontal range domain maybe ten times as long as the max height I expected.
