The height of the object is measured at three different points in time, and the data are recorded in the table shown below.
Time(s)  Height(ft)
1  19
2  21
3  11
1. Find a quadratic function that fits the data by solving a system.
I also have 3 more questions...but there's not enough room here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got \[h(t)=13x ^{2}56x+62\] But the answer in my textbook says it's \[h(t)=6x ^{2}+20x+5\] What did I do wrong?
