Homework Help: college algebra

Posted by Anonymous on Monday, February 25, 2013 at 12:55am.

If a rocket is propelled upward from ground level, its height in meters after t seconds is given by h=-9.8t^2+88.2t. During what interval of time will the rocket be higher than137.2m?

Do I set it up like this?

-9.8(1)^2+88.2(1)+137.2 = 215.6

Then h=b/2a=9.8/215.6=22m

137.2+22=159

Thanks for your help.
