this seems more like a phsics word problem, I am not even sure how to set this problem up to use it as a polynomial. "A person holds a pistol straight upward and fires. The initial velocity of most bullets is around 1200 ft/sec. The hieght of the bullet is a function of time and is described by h(t)= -16t^2+1200t How long after the gun is fired, does the person have to get out of the way of the bullet falling from the sky?? " not even sure what to do or how to set it up..
