Math

Every year in Delaware there is a contest where people create cannons and catapults designed to launch pumpkins as far in the air as possible. the equation y=15+110x-16x^2 can be used to represent the height, y, of a launched pumpkin, where x is the time in seconds that the pumpkin has been in the air. What is the maximum height that the pumpkin reaches? How many seconds have passed when the pumpkin hits the ground?
A.The pumpkin's maximum height is 204.06 feet and it hits the ground after 7.01 seconds
B.The pumpkin's maximum height is 3.44 feet and it hits the ground after 7.01 seconds
C.The pumpkin's maximum height is 204.06 feet and it hits the ground after 3.44 seconds D.The pumpkin's maximum height is 3.44 feet and it hits the ground after 204.06 seconds

  1. find the vertex to find the maximum height

    let 0 = 15 + 110t - 16t^2 and solve for t
    to get the time it hits the ground.
    One of your answers will be negative, you will ignore that one

  10. Rach's answer is definitely wrong. Not only is it wrong math-wise, logically, the pumpkin wouldn't take 3 seconds to fall from 200 ft. (Unless it was as heavy as a car, then maybe) But the answer is A. Thank you all, and remember, it's not cheating if you're not caught!
