Flights of leaping animals typically have parabolic paths. The figure illustrates a frog jump superimposed on a coordinate plane. The length of the leap is 9 feet, and the maximum height off the ground is 3a feet. Find a standard equation for the path of the frog. Assume a = 1.

A doorway has the shape of a parabolic arch and is 16 feet high at the center and 8 feet wide at the base. If a rectangular box 7 feet high must fit through the doorway, what is the maximum width the box can have?
