A tennis ball was 2 feet off the ground when a tennis player hit it so that the ball traveled up in the air before coming back to the ground. The height of the tennis ball is described by the graph shown. Numbers along the x-axis represent the time, in seconds, after the ball was hit, and the numbers along the y-axis represent the height, in feet, of the ball at time x.
