Omar throws a softball from a starting height of 8 feet, with an initial velocity of 18 feet per second. Which of the following equations shows the path of the softball? H(t) = −16t2 + 26 H(t) = −16t2 + 26t H(t) = −16t2 + 8t + 18 H(t) = −16t2 + 18t + 8

    Omar throws a softball from a starting height of 8 feet, They are not very clear, but we have to assume "start" is at t (t for time) = 0 which equation shows the height is 8 when t= 0 ? any idea?

    C H(t) = −16t2 + 8t + 18 put in 0 in place of t what do you get ?

    erase the "t" and put in 0 instead

    yes, and for an equation that describes throwing something into the air, the number in front of the middle term 18 t is the initial velocity
