I have several problems like this one in my book. It's asking me to find out an equation using a table of values.
"A precalculus class launches a model rocket on the football field. the rocket fires for two seconds. Each second thereafter they measure its altitude, finding these values.
At what time t do you predict the rocket will hit the ground? (Round to the nearest hundredth)"
I already know this is a power function, because the rocket will eventually hit the ground, something the exponential doesn't do. I just don't see how to use 234 feet, 220 feet, and 174 feet.
I'm confused out of my mind, and if I could get some guidance on this one problem I'll certainty be able to figure out the slew of other ones like this!
Thanks in advance ya'll
