IF a pro basketball player has a vertical hangtime of about 35 inches, what is his hangtime? Use hangtime function V=48T^2. This is how I have started this question
35=38T^With this my answer is 0.854, 0.854 Is this right?

35 inches is not the measurement of a "hang time". Please verify the wording of your question.
Is that the distance he is able to raise his center of mass?
What are the units of V in your equation?
I fear your teacher may be unqualified to teach the subject 
check your typing, this looks weird
