Homework Help: Algebra 2

Posted by Krystal on Monday, September 2, 2013 at 6:10pm.

A woodland jumping mouse hops along a parabolic path given by y=-0.2x^2+1.3x where x is the mouse's horizontal position (in feet) and y is the corresponding height (in feet). Can the mouse jump over a fence 3 feet high? Explain.

I know that x is 3.25 and the mouse's horizontal position in feet and I know that y is 2.1 (2.1125) and the corresponding height in feet. I don't understand how to tell if the mouse can jump over a fence that is three feet high. Could someone please explain this to me?
