the height, h, of a ball t seconds after it is released for a jump shot in a basketball game can be modeled with the equation h = −16t2 + 12t + 8.
The rim of the basket is 10 feet high. Which of the following is the correct way to set up the problem to solve when the ball reaches this height?

  • math -

    i believ the answer you want would be 10=-16t^2 + 12t +8
