As we do not have any real options of response, only a graph of the problem. Assuming that you are using the TI-83 or TI-84 calculator or variant, you need to press "Y=," and in the first type of slot (-16.1 X^2 + 150). Then, press the "GRAPH" button and you should see the graph. The view will vary depending on the set window, which can be changed by hitting the "WINDOW" button.The attached image is a screen capture of a graphic calculator simulator. According to the equation, this is what the chart should be.Note: The chart does not simulate a ball is dropped from 15 units, but instead of 150 units. Do you forget that last 0?
