Question

Clovis is standing at the edge of a cliff, which slopes 4 feet downward from him for every 1 horizontal foot. He launches a small model rocket from where he is standing. With the origin of the coordinate system located where he is standing, and the x-axis extending horizontally, the path of the rocket is described by the formula y = −2x2 + 80x.

Give a function h = f(x) relating the height h of the rocket above the sloping ground to its x-coordinate.
