A model rocket is launched from a roof into a large field. The path the rocket can be modeled by the equation y=-0.04x^2+8.3x+4.3 where x is the horizontal distance in meters, from the starting point on the roof and y is the height in meters, of the rocket above the ground. How far horizontally from its starting point will the rocket land?

  2. Since you want the distance horizontally from the starting point, you want y to be 4.3m which is the initial height, thus
    0 = -.04x^2 + 8.3x
    x(.04x - 8.3) = 0
    x = 0 , which would be our starting point and
    x = 8.3/.04 or 207.5 m

    your answer would be the distance from a height of 4.3 m to the ground, which would not be a horizontal line
