The height of a ball that was batted into the air at 160 feet per second is a function of t, the time in seconds after the ball was hit. The height is determined by subtracting 16 times the square of t from 160 times t. Which equation can be used to find t when the ball is 400 feet high?
A. 160t-16t^2=400
B. (160-16)t^2=400
C. 160(t^2-t)=400
D. 160-(16-t^2)=400
E. 16t^2-160t=400

    h = height

    t = time


    h = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2

    400 = 160 t - 16 t ^ 23


    160 t - 16 t ^ 23 = 400

    Sorry my tipfeler.

    Answer is A


    h = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2

    400 = 160 t - 16 t ^ 2


    160 t - 16 t ^ 2 = 400
