Once upon a time, in a land far away, there was a baseball game. The RC's were up 98-2 against the FG's. The FG's pitcher, Greycen, was a horrible pitcher. Greycen's pitches lobbed a lot, and were too easy to hit. One pitch that Greycen threw was with a vertical speed of 10 feet per second, thrown 2 feet off the ground (Greycen was very short). The same pitch had a horizontal speed of 0.01 feet per second. This situation can be modeled with the parametric equation. How far away did the pitch land from the pitcher?

**Assumptions:**

All gravity/friction physics stuff can be equal to \(16 t^{2}\).

The ball lands at a height of zero (you are essentially trying to find the horizontal distance the ball traveled before hitting the ground).

Round all calculations to the nearest hundred thousandth (even the in-between calculations).
