Patty is only 7 years old, but she insists she can play basketball with a regulation-height hoop. She can throw the ball with an initial velocity of 11 feet per second.
The equation for the height of the ball is y = −16t2 + vt + s
where v is the initial velocity, t is in seconds, and s is the initial height.
How high can she throw a ball? Answer in units of ft.
