I don't know where to plug each number in the equation.

- Math -
**PsyDAG**, Monday, May 11, 2009 at 3:27pmI assume h = height = 40 feet. Whatever t stands for, I assume that is the value you are trying to find. Will it also be expressed in units of feet? If so, this leads me to:

16t^2 + 36t - 40 = 0

4(4t^2 + 9t -10) = 0

Unfortunately, I am unable to factor it any further. Are there any typos in your formula?

Sorry that I can't be of more help. Thanks for asking.
