Step 1 help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseNote that, the general form of a parabolic equation with vertex (h,k) is wwww a(x -hk, where a is real constant. y in above the equation as the value of h=100 and k = 500 Substitute y a(x-100) 500 Rewrite the equation y a(x-100) 500 as follows y a(x-100) 500 a(x-100)y500 y-500 a = (x-100) The golf ball driven in parabolic path of altitude 500 and its distance along the ground is 200 and the origin is at tee. That is, the coordinate for starting and end point of the ball will be(0,0) and (200,0) fullscreen
