*PLEASE HELP*!!COIN IS TOSSED UPWARD FROM A BALCONY 188FT HIGH WITH AN INITIAL VELOCITY OF 32FT PER SEC. THE HEIGHT OF THE COIN, IN FT AFTER "T" SECONDS IS GIVEN BY FUNCTION h(t)=-16^2+32+188. FOR WHAT LENGTH OF TIME WILL THE COIN BE AT THE HEIGHT OF AT LEAST 60 FT?

    O.o.......i mean the equation would work better if it was lik \[h(t)=-16(T^{2})+32T+188\]

    that would make more sense... in which you would substitute h(t) for 60 and then solve from there

    so then it would be \[60=-16(T^{2})+32T+188\]

    pull the 60 over to get.... \[0=-16(T^{2}) +32T +128\]

    now you can take out 16 from the whole equation to get.... \[0=-T^{2}+2T+8\]

    of which can turnn into ..... \[0=(-T+4)(T+2)\]

    so then T={4,-2} since you're dealing with only positive time (as time usually can only be positive)... you get T=4
