I tried solving it 2 times! The shape of the parabola is open down so has a maximum at its summit. The math question gave a table and data. I figured out the zeros and axis of symmetry. Here is the necessary information:
First Zero:
(0,0)
x1 = 0
Second Zero:
(80,0)
x2 = 80
Equation of the axis of symmetry:
x1 + x2 / 2
= 0 + 80 / 2
= 80 / 2
= 40
Thanks!
