A naval warship is conducting a training exercise to test the accuracy of its missile systems. The warship is tasked with sinking a model ship that is placed at the point (10,0), however, the missile system is set to fire projectiles in a parabolic motion along y=-(1/2 x-3)^2+4. If the real warship is positioned at the point (1,0), will it hit the model ship? Use mathematical reasoning and GeoGebra to prove your answer.
