After how many seconds does it reach its maximum height?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you know it hits its maximum height at its' vertex. you know how to find the x for the vertex by \[x=\frac{b}{2a}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1with calculus \[y=16t^2+440t\] \[y'=32t+440=velocity\] we know that the velocity of y is 0 at the point of max height so \[0=32t+440\] \[440=32t\] \[\frac{440}{32}=t\] 13.75 seconds

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1without calculus \[ax^2+bx+c\] in our case \[ax^2+bx\] \[x=\frac{b}{2a}\] \[\frac{440}{32}\] 13.75 seconds
