    still doesn't make sense... do you mean h=-.01d^2+1.18d+2?

    You find the max (which is the highest point which is called the vertex by) x = -b/(2a) x = -1.18/(2*-.01) x = 59

    Then you plug in x = 59 to find the height. y = -.01(59)^2 + 1.18(59) +2 y = -34.81 + 69.62 + 2 y = 36.81 Which is the height of the ball at the maximum point
