There isn't enough information. Is there a part of the word problem you left out?
What was the maximum height obtained by the ball?
A rim of a basketball net is 10 feet high. For what distance was the ball above the rim of the basketball net?
How far would the shooter have to be away from the rim of the basketball net for the ball to hit the rim of the basketball net and possibly go in?
A programmer is writing the code for a new interactive basketball game. As a result, she is using quadratic relations to model the path of the ball. During the game, when a ball is shot, the path it follows is modelled by the quadratic relation, , where h represented the height of the ball above the ground and d represented the distance of the ball from the shooter. Both distances are measured in feet.
