Can someone help me do an example like this one.

State the application, give the equation of the quadratic function, and state what the x and y in the application represent. Choose at least two values of x to input into your function and find the corresponding y for each. State, in words, what each x and y means in terms of your real-life application. Please see the following example. You may use other variables besides x and y, such as t and S depicted in the following example, but you may not use that example. Be sure to reference all sources using APA style.

Typing hint: To type x-squared, use x^2. Do not use special graphs or symbols because they will not appear when pasted to the Discussion Board.

When thrown into the air from the top of a 50 ft building, a ball’s height, S, at time t can be found by S(t) = -16t^2 + 32t + 50. When t = 1, s = -16(1)^2 + 32(1) + 50 = 66. This implies that after 1 second, the height of the ball is 66 feet. When t = 2, s = -16(2)^2 + 32(2) + 50 = 50. This implies that after 2 seconds, the height of the ball is 50 feet.
