This is my first time using this and im really stuck on this question i got a 50 on it. Can someone help ? After a dreary day of rain, the sun peeks through the clouds and a rainbow forms. You notice the rainbow is the shape of a parabola. Create an equation. Use the graph below to create the equation of the rainbow parabola

    I need a second equation, this is what my teacher replied. "What is your 2nd equation and where does it intersect y=-x^2+36"

    using the rots we get the factor of y =-1(x-6)(x+6)

    I dont think so... The following question is Create a table of values for a linear function. A drone is in the distance, flying upward in a straight line. It intersects the rainbow at two points. Choose the points where your drone intersects the parabola and create a table of at least four values for the function. Remember to include the two points of intersection in your table. SO i think just in y=mx+b form
