    max height is at the vertex. use \(t=-\frac{b}{2a}\) to find it

    oh but first you need the equation. it is \[h(t)=-16t^2+v_0t+h_0\] in your case \(h_0=160\) and \(v_0=\) hmm confused. what is the initial velocity?

    oh it is 24, so your equation is \[h(t)=-16t^2+24t+160\] max when \(t=\frac{24}{32}=\frac{3}{4}\) replace \(t\) by \(\frac{3}{4}\) to find the max height
