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. $h(d) = -0.0013(d - 246.2)^2 + 78.9$
