Problem Solving and Reasoning Task

1.

Equation: y = -1.2𝒙2 + 8.4𝒙

a. The bridge is 7 metres wides so therefore it will successfully span the river with 2 metres to spare.

b. If a yacht has a 15 metre mask it will be unable to pass safely under the bridge because the bridge only has a vertical height 14.7 metres.

2. Equation: v= -0.2h2 + 2.4h

a. The horizontal distance covered by the rocket when it reached its maximum height of 7.2 metres was 6 metres.

b. The maximum height reached by the rocket was 7.2 metres.

c. At the horizontal distance of 9 metres from the launch site, there is a 5.2 metre wall and at that vertical distance, the rocket has a vertical distance 5.4 metre. That is not taking to account the dimensions of the rocket, however the rocket cannot have a diameter larger than 20cm otherwise it may not theoretically clear the wall.
