b) A gigantic gate to the entrance of a theme park in the shape of a parabola is constructed on a level ground. The horizontal distance between the end points of the gigantic gate is 20 meters. The maximum height of the gigantic gate from the ground is 5 meters. Calculate the height of the gigantic gate at a horizontal distance of 4 meters from one of the end points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0equation for such a parabola is: y =( 1/20)x^2 + 5 where vertex at (0,5) and endpoints at (+10,0) 4 away from endpoints is at x = +6 y = (1/20)(6^2) +5 y = 36/20 + 5 y = 64/20 y = 16/5
