Use the method of completing the square to find the vertex form of the function $h(d)$. Round computed coefficients and terms to one decimal place, if necessary.
1. $h(d) = -0.0013(d + 246.2)^2 + 0.2$
2. $h(d) = (-0.0013d - 0.6)^2 + 0.2$
3. $h(d) = -0.0013 ( d^2 -246.2) - 60","594.6$
4. $h(d) = -0.0013(d - 246.2)^2 + 78.9$

Why are the numbers for the percent rate of change calculated in the previous two questions not the same?
1. Because the calculations didn't use exact numbers, and therefore there are rounding errors.
2. Because the function has an added constant (it is not of the form $ab^x$).
3. Because the percent rate of change calculated from the different form of the function, $T(t) = a*b^t + c$, is a general rate of change, which is not the same as the specific rate of change from $t=1$ to $t=2$.
4. Because an exponential function is not constant, therefore its percent rate of change shouldn't be constant.
Which of the following is the correct fully factored form of the function $h(t) ?$
1. $h(t) = (2.2t - 5.5)(2.2 + 5.5)$
2. $h(t) = 4.9(t^2 + 6.1t)$
3. $h(t) = -4.9t (t - 6.1)$
4. $h(t) = (-4.9t - 3)(t + 10)$
