A sandbag was thrown downward from a building. The function f(t) = -16t2 - 32t + 384 shows the height f(t), in feet, of the sandbag after t seconds:
Part A: Factor the function f(t) and use the factors to interpret the meaning of the x-intercept of the function. (4 points)
Part B: Complete the square of the expression for f(x) to determine the vertex of the graph of f(x). Would this be a maximum or minimum on the graph? (4 points)
Part C: Use your answer in part B to determine the axis of symmetry for f(x)? (2 points)

well factor out -16 and you get
\[f(t) = -16(t^2 + 2t - 24)\]
now factor the quadratic

In part B it talks about f(x).... where does that come from... seeing the original equation is f(t)

Wait how did you get that for a?
