A baseball is thrown straight up from the rooftop 192 feet high. The function s(t)=16t^2+64t+192 describes the ball's height above the ground,s(t), in feet, t seconds after it was thrown. How long will it take for the ball to hit the ground? Explain

Your equation does not make sense, things would be falling upwards
I think it should be
s(t) = 16t^2 + 64t + 192
we want 0 = 16t^2 + 64t + 192
t^2  t  12 = 0
(t4)(t+3) = 0
t = 4 or t = 3 , but t > 0
so t = 4 seconds
