A projectile was launched from ground level with an initial velocity of the v0 neglecting air resistance is high in feet two seconds after launch is given by S= -16T^2 + v0t find the times that the projectile will reach a high of 128 feet and return to the ground when the zero equals 96 feet per second

  1. what does "the zero equals 96 feet per second" mean?
    I think you meant to say v0 = 96 ft/s
    s = -16t^2 + 96t
    so you need to solve
    -16t^2 + 96t = 128
    t^2 - 6t + 8 = 0
    (t-2)(t-4) = 0
    t=2 (on the way up)
    t=4 (on the way back down)
    and
    -16t^2 + 96t = 0
    -16t(t-6) = 0
    t=0 (at the start)
    t=6 (upon impact)
