Math: Word Problem

A ball is thrown upward from the top of a building which is 96ft tall w/ Initial velocity of 80 ft per sec.
Distance s(ft) of ball from the ground after t sec is s=96+80t-16t^(2)

1) how many sec. will the ball pass the top of the building when it is coming down?

How would I solve this?

  • Math: Word Problem -

    set s(t) to 96 and solve.

    96=96+80t-16t^2
    solve for t

    why would I set 96 for s(t) because that's the height of the building ?
    but it's when the ball passes the top of the building

    Also I tried solving it I got to
    -16t(t-5)= 0 what should I do next

    I finished solving it. thank you
