A fountain in a shopping mall has two parabolic arcs of water intersecting. The equation of one parabola is y = -0.25x^2+2x and the equation of the second parabola is y=-0.205x^2+4x-11.75. How high above the base of the fountain do the parabolas intersect? All dimensions are in feet. Round to the nearest hundredth.
