# a ball is thrown into the air with an upward velocity of 32 ft per second. Its height h in feet after t seconds is given by the function h(t)=-16t^2 +32t+6. How long does it take the ball to reach its maximum height? What is the balls maximum height?

a- 22 ft 1.0 second
b- 22 ft 2.0 seconds
c- 44 ft 2.17 seconds
d- 11 ft 2.17 seconds

my answer is c or d

1. h(t)=16t(2-t) + 6

so note that at t=0, and t=2 h(t) is 6, the starting point.

So max t occurs then at t=1, halfway (it is a parabola).

max h=16(1)+6=22

5. Sports. A baseball is thrown into the air with upward velocity of 30 ft / s. Its height h, in feet, after t seconds is given by the function h = -16t ^ + 30t + 6. How long will it take the ball to reach its maximum height? What is the ball's maximum height? What is the range of the function?
