5. A satellite dish is a precise mathematical shape (a parabola) that has the property of focusing a
reflected signal at a single point. The scale drawing of a cross section of a 28 foot wide parabolic
satellite dish is shown on the graph where each square is 1ft x 1ft. The dish is designed using
the equation y = .04x22. The ordered pair solutions of the equation become the dimensions
necessary to build this amazing device.
