    I think what you meant by the formula was this: \[h(t) = 3 + 60t - 16t^2\]in which case, this shouldn't be too much of a problem. The problem's initial rates and constants are given in terms of seconds anyway, so all that needs to be done is plug in the value \[t=1\]into the above equation and you'll get your answer.
