Stephanie is a very good soccer player. She can kick a soccer ball with an initial velocity of
21.3 m/sec. The function that represents the height of the ball with respect to time is ℎ 𝑥 =
−4.9𝑥2 + 21.3𝑥. About how many seconds will it take for the ball to hit the ground?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[h(x)=4.9x^2+21.3x ?\] we want to know what x is when the ball hits the ground well when the ball hits the ground the height between the ball and the ground is 0 so you want to solve for x when h(x)=0
