Two boats depart from a port located at (–10, 0) in a coordinate system measured in kilometers, and they travel in a positive x-direction. The first boat follows a path that can be modeled by a quadratic function with a vertex at (0, 5), and the second boat follows a path that can be modeled by a linear function and passes through the point (10, 4). At what point, besides the common starting location of the port, do the paths of the two boats cross?
