Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We are looking for the highest point of a facing down parabola, therefore the vertex of the parabola.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3H(t) = −16t2 + vt + s Represents the equation of your parabola, we are looking for the vertex, the xvalue of the vertex could be found by using the formula \[\frac{b}{2a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now, 30 feet per second. v=30 H(t) = −16t2 + 30t + s

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3A quadratic equation is \(ax^2+bx+c\) Where the x of the vertex is at \(\large \frac{b}{2a}\) In our equation H(t) = −16t2 + 30t + s b is 30 and a is 16 \[\frac{30}{2(16)}=\frac{30}{32}=\frac{30}{32}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3What you have to do next it to replace this xvalue back into the equation to find the height (yvalue) And sorry I'm at work so I was afk :(
