You are watering a garden. The height hh (in feet) of water spraying from the garden hose can be modeled by h(x)=−0.1x2+0.7x+3h(x)=−0.1x2+0.7x+3, where xx is the horizontal distance (in feet) from where you are standing. You raise the hose so that the water hits the ground 1 foot farther from where you are standing. Write a function that models the new path of the water.
if x represents the distance, and you want the distance to be 1 foot farther than x, simply add 1 to ‘x’.
Depending on your teacher, you may have to expand this, then combine like terms to get the final equation.
