Estimate the maximum height reached by a baseball during its flight if it is thrown with a velocity of 81 feet per second at an angle of 75 degrees relative to level ground.

3. The attempt at a solution

I found an answer, but I don't know if I did it right so I guess I'm just asking for someone to check it.

I found x = (81cos 75)T and y = -16T^2 + (81sin 75)T

So I put that in my calculator in parametric mode and graphed it with the right window. I got that the highest it would reach is 95.62ft when T=2.4

Is that right?
