a ball is thrown straight up into the air with an initial velocity of 128 ft/sec, the total amount of time in seconds that it takes the object to return to the earth can be calculated by using the quadratic, 128t16t^2=0. Determine the "flight time," t, of the ball.

I truthfully do not know this is a tricky one
