A Labrador leaps over a hurdle. The function f(t) represents the height of the Labrador above the ground, in inches, at t seconds:
f(t) = 16t2 + 26t
A foxhound jumps over the same hurdle. The table shows the height of the foxhound above the ground g(t), in inches, at t seconds:
Time (t) g(t)
0 0
0.4 6.24
0.6 7.44
0.7 7.56
0.8 7.36
1.0 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Part A: Compare and interpret the maximum of f(t) and g(t)? (4 points) Part B: Which function has a greater xintercept? What do the xintercepts of the graphs of f(t) and g(t) represent? (4 points) Part C: Determine the yintercepts of both funct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is this correct for each? Part A: the max of g(t) occurs when t=0.6 seconds, for f(t) since the parabola is concave down due to the negative sign then we know that there is a max on the parabola, the max for f(t) occurs at (13/16,169/16) 169/6=10.5625inches at time 0.8125seconds Part B: f(t) has greater x intercepts, meaning that when the labrador will land later than the fox when it jumps over the hurdle Part C: The y intercept is when y = 0.
