So the dead line for my class is coming up. And I really need help for these questions!
2. Elaine shoots an arrow upward at a speed of 32 feet per second from a bridge that is 28 feet high. The height of the arrow is given by the function h(t) = -16t2+32t + 28, where t is the time in seconds.
a. What is the maximum height that the arrow reaches?
b. How long does it take the arrow to reach its maximum height?
c. How long would it take before the arrow reached the ground? Round your answer to the hundredths place.
3. A person standing close to the edge on the top of an 80-foot tower throws a ball with an initial speed of 64 feet per second. After t seconds, the height of the ball above the ground is
s(t) = -16t2 +64t + 80
a. After how many seconds will the ball reach its maximum height?
b. How long will it take before the ball reaches the ground?
c. What is the maximum height of the ball?

4. An object is launched at 19.6 meters per second from a 58.8 meter tall platform. The equation for the object's height s at time t seconds after launch is s(t) = -4.9t2+ 19.6t + 58.8, where s is in meters.
a. When does the object strike the ground?
b. What was its maximum height?
c. How long will it take to reach its maximum height?

5. A ball is thrown directly upward from an initial height of 200 feet with an initial velocity of 96 feet per second. After t seconds, the height of the ball above the ground is s(t) = 16t2+ 96t + 200.
a. After how many seconds will the ball reach its maximum height?
b. What was the maximum height?
c. How long will it take before the ball reaches the ground?

6. A soft-drink vendor at a popular beach analyzes his sales records, and finds that if he sells x cans of soda pop in one day, his profit (in dollars) is given by P(x) = -0.001x2+ 3x – 1800.
