A baseball player hits a pitch when the ball is 2 feet off the ground. Two hundred feet from the plate, the ball reaches its maximum height of 82 feet. Will the ball clear the home run wall that is 10 feet high and 380 feet from home plate?

The equation below models the height in feet, h, of a softball t seconds after it is hit by a batter.
