A baseball player hit a ball with an upward velocity of 46 ft/s. Its height h is feet after t seconds is given by the function h = -16t^2 + 46t + 6. What is the maximum height the ball reaches? How long will it take the baseball to reach the maximum height? How long does it take for the ball to hit the ground?

My answer was 39.0626 after 1.4375 seconds. Did I work it correctly? Thanks
