a)how high was the frog when its horizontal distances from the base of the box was 2 feet?

b)at what two horizontal distances from the base of the box was the frog 3.25 feet above the ground?

c)at what horizontal distance from the base of the box did the frog reach its highest point?

d) what was the maximum height reached by the frog?

h(2) = 3.5

3.25 = -0.5x^2+1.25x+3

-0.5x^2+1.25x-.25 = 0

x = .22 (going up) or 2.28 (coming down)

a parabola reaches its vertex when x = -b/2a = -1.25/-1 = 1.25

h(1.25) = 3.781
