(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A golf ball is hit with a velocity of 50 m/s. The angle to the ground is 17 degrees. find t

2. Relevant equations

The equation my teacher provided was: y=vi(sinθt)-4.9t^2

3. The attempt at a solution

0= 50sin17-4.9t^2

0=-4.9t^2-48.1t

this is where i got stuck... i guess it's more the actual algebra that i'm stuck on. I tried the quadratic formula but i got an odd answer and now i'm blanking on other options. it's only my 3rd week of school so i'm still sort of rusty.

any help would be greatly appreciated!
