b) for what time interval is the ball more than 96 feet above the ground?

c) what is the maximum height of the ball?

d) after how many seconds does the ball reach the maximum height?

80t - 16t^2 > 96

16t^2 - 80t + 96 < 0

t^2 - 5t + 6 < 0

(t-2)(t-3) < 0

so the ball is higher than 96 for

2 < t < 3, that is, between 2 and 3 seconds

c) s = -16(t^2 - 5t**+ 25/4 - 25/4**)

= -16(t-5/2)^2 + 100

I will leave it up to you to interpret that result.
