A rocket is launched from atop a 105-foot cliff with an initial velocity of 156ft/s. the height of the rocket above the ground at time t is given by

h= -16t^2 + 156t + 105. When will the

rocket hit the ground after it is launched? Round to the nearest second.

-16t^2 + 156t + 105 = 0

t = (39 ± √1941)/8

t = 10 sec
