Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0speed is zero when it has gone up as far as it can and starts coming back down. that will be at the vertex of this parabola. find the vertex via \[\frac{b}{2a}\] and that will give you the time. replace t by that number and you will get the max height

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here \[a=16, b = 14,\frac{b}{2a}=\frac{14}{2\times 16}=\frac{7}{16}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then find \[h(\frac{7}{16})\]a nd i guess (although i did not do it) you will get 4. if not then the answer is whatever you get
