    We are looking for the highest point of a facing down parabola, therefore the vertex of the parabola.

    H(t) = −16t2 + vt + s Represents the equation of your parabola, we are looking for the vertex, the x-value of the vertex could be found by using the formula \[\frac{-b}{2a}\]

    so one of these 14.1 feet 13.7 feet 13.2 feet 15.2 feet

    Now, 30 feet per second. v=30 H(t) = −16t2 + 30t + s

    A 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 \[\frac{-30}{2(-16)}=\frac{-30}{-32}=\frac{30}{32}\]

    What you have to do next it to replace this x-value back into the equation to find the height (y-value) And sorry I'm at work so I was afk :(
