## Transcribed Text

In Acapulco, Mexico, there is a famous place called La Quebrada, or "The Break in the Rocks," where divers jump from high on the cliffs into the Pacific Ocean. Once a diver jumps, there is a relationship between how far from the cliff the diver is and how high above the water the diver is. The relationship is given by the function y = -x2 + 2.c + 22. In this function, X is the diver's horizontal distance from the cliff and y is the diver's height above the water. Both distances are in meters. How far from the cliff is the diver when the diver is at the highest point above the water? How high is the diver at that time? Show all the work necessary. You must check your answer by going back to standard form. 1 2 3 a X Acapulco, Mexico, there is a famous place called La Quebrada, or "The Break in the Rocks," where divers jump from high on the cliffs into the acific Ocean. Once a diver jumps, there is a relationship between how far from the cliff the diver is and how high above the water the diver is. ne relationship is given by the function y = -x2 + 2.c + 22.
