  1. First let me fix your post:

    A model rocket is launched with an initial upward velocity of
    164 ft/s. The rocket's height h (in feet) after t seconds is given by the following.
    h = −16t^2 + 164t
    Find all values of t for which the rocket's height is 92 feet.

    so you want:
    92 = -16t^2 + 164t
    16t^2 - 164t + 92 = 0
    4t^2 - 41t + 23 = 0
    Use the quadratic equation to solve.
