The function y = -0.296x^2 + 2.7x models the length x and height y that your sisters rabbit can jump, in centimeters. How high does the rabbit jump? What is the length of the jump? A.) 2.7 cm high; 0.296 cm long B.) 6.2 cm high; 9.1 cm long C.) 4.6 cm high; 6.2 cm long D.) 9.1 cm high; 6.2 cm long

Since the function andÂ choices are already given, the simplest method would be to try out the given values of x and see if the value of y obtained and given int he choices would coincide. Using this trial and error method, it has been shown that the correct answer among the choices is choice C, with the solution shown below: y = -0.296x^2 + 2.7x Using (4.6, 6.2): y = -0.296(4.6)^2 + 2.7(4.6) y = 6.2
