# Question H An athlete whose event is the shot put releases a shot. When the shot whose path is shown by the graph to the right is released at an angle of 65, its height, f(x), in feet, can be modeled by f(x)=-0.03x + 2.1x+5.5, where x is the shot's horizontal distance, in feet, from its point of release. Use this model to solve parts (a) through (c) and verify your answers using the graph. 40- 30 20- 10- 04 0 Shot Put's Horizontal Distance 20 40 60 80 100 a.
