Please help me with the following problem, I have submitted the answer: 88.2 and was told that it was incorrect. The word problem reads:

If you do not consider air resistance, gravity causes a falling object to descend a distance of (9.8)t2 where t is the time in seconds. If a 16 pound bowling ball is dropped from the tallest building in the world, how many meters does it fall during the 4th and 5th seconds combined

Thank you
