If a ball is tossed into the air from a height of 6 feet

with a velocity of 32 feet per second, then its altitude at time t (in seconds)

can be described by the function

A(t) = - 16t^2 + 32t + 6.

Find the altitude of the ball at 2 seconds.

I am having problems understanding how to work out this word solving problem. Can someone help me? Thanks.
