**Reiny**, Monday, January 30, 2012 at 6:29pmYour equation should be

f(t) = - 16t^2 + 128t

so

-16t^2 + 128t = 0

t^2 - 8t = 0

t(t-8) = 0

t = 0 ----> when you tossed it

t = 8 ----> when it lands

so it reached the hightest point at the midpoint of that 8 seconds, namely at 4 seconds

f(4) = -16(4^2) + 128(4)

= 256 ft

Wow!, That is quite a feat to through a pomegranate 256 feet into the air!!!!!
