The statement does not make sense. A quadratic function provides a better description of the football’s path than a linear function.

Work Step by Step

When a player kicks a football, the football follows a parabolic path instead of a straight-line path. Thus, the function should be quadratic and not a linear function. Hence, the quadratic function has a better description as compared to the linear function. Therefore, the statement does not make sense.
