Question

A long jumper leaves the ground at an angle of 20 degrees above the horizontal, at a speed of 11 m/sec. The height

of the jumper can be modeled by h(x) = -0.046x^2 + 0.364x, where h is the jumper's height in meters and x is the horizontal distance from the point of launch.

A) At what horizontal distance from the point of launch does the maximum height occur? Please help me round 2 decimal places.

B) What is the maximum height of the long jumper? Please help me round 2 decimal places.

(A) Horizontal distance from the point of launch where the maximum... View the full answer

The height of the jumper can be modeled by
h(x) = -0.046x2 + 0.364.r,
where
h = The jumper's height in meters and
r = Horizontal distance from the point of launch
(A)
h has a local maximum when
dh...
