A rocket is launched from the ground and follows a parabolic path represented by the equation y=-x(squared)+10x. at the same time, a flare is launched from a height of 10 feet and follows a straight path represented by the equation y=-x+10. Using the accompanying set of axes, graph the equations that represent the paths of the r
