Jessie and Jayla simultaneously toss tennis balls from the window of an apartment building at a height of 150 feet into a bucket at a height of 15 feet, 3 inches on the roof of the building next door. The quadratic functions that model the height, in feet, of the balls after t seconds are h(t) = - 16t^2 - 5t + 150 for Jessie and h(t) = - 16t^2 + 5t +150 for Jayla. Which ball lands in the bucket sooner? Examine the two equations to explain the difference in the times.
