An object is dropped from 39ft below the tip of the Petronaas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The height h of the object after t seconds is given by the equation h=-16t+1444. Find how many seconds pass before the object reaches the ground.

  1. All you have to do is put 39 in for h. So you get 39=-16t+1444. And solve.
