The height of a ball that was batted into the air at 160 feet per second is a function of t, the time in seconds after the ball was hit. The height is determined by subtracting 16 times the square of t from 160 times t. Which equation can be used to find t when the ball is 400 feet high?

A. 160t-16t^2=400

B. (160-16)t^2=400

C. 160(t^2-t)=400

D. 160-(16-t^2)=400

E. 16t^2-160t=400

h = height

t = time

h = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2

400 = 160 t - 16 t ^ 23

160 t - 16 t ^ 23 = 400

Sorry my tipfeler.

Answer is A

h = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2

400 = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2

160 t - 16 t ^ 2 = 400
