The formula h=280t-7t^2 gives the height, h in meters, of a rocket t seconds after take off. The maximum height reached by the rocket is 2800 m. How long will it take the rocket to reach this maximum height?

  • Algebra -

    h = 280t - 7t^2 = 2800.
    -7t^2 + 280t - 2800 = 0
    Use Quadratic Formula.
    t = 20 s.
