The underside of the bridge is an arch that can be modeled with the function y = –0.000475x2 + 0.851x, where x and y are in feet. How high above the river is the bridge (the top of the arch)? How long is the section of bridge above the arch?

    to calculate the high of the bridge, just calculate the max value of the function, and the length just calculate the absolut value of the distance of the root of the function
