Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The function H(t) = −16t2 + 60t + 95 shows the height H(t), in feet, of a projectile after t seconds. A second object moves in the air along a path represented by g(t) = 20 + 38.7t, where g(t) is the height, in feet, of the object from the ground at time t seconds. Part A: Create a table using integers 1 through 4 for the 2 functions. Between what 2 seconds is the solution to H(t) = g(t) located? How do you know? (6 points) Part B: Explain what the solution from Part A means in the context of the problem. (4 points)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i don't think I'm doing it right, can you do the last two on your own while I do them? We check on each others.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if t = 1, then h(t) = 16t^2 + 60t + 95 h(1) = 16(1)^2 + 60(1) + 95 h(1) = 16(1) + 60(1) + 95 h(1) = 16 + 60 + 95 h(1) = 139

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part B: The solution for Part A has meaning in the context of the problem by showing how many seconds it would take for both objects to be at the same height.
