(b) plug in that value to get h

(c) solve for t when h=0

**Kuai**, Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 1:44pma) x = -b/2a

x = -32/2(-16) = 1

t = 1 sec to reach max height

b) h = -16(1)^2 + 32(1) + 240

h = -16 + 32 + 240 = 256

h = 256 ft is the max height

c) 0 = -16(t^2 -2t-15)

0 = -16(t-5)(t+ 3)

t = -3, t = 5

t = 5 seconds for the ball to hit the ground.
