Homework Help: Please help me with a basic math equation

  1. Oct 30, 2007 #1
    I've already done the Physics part, but now I am stuck with the equation 2h = vt + gt^2

    It's just a variable problem, so no numbers are involved, just variables. Now I just need help solving for t.

    You have a quadratic equation, so you'll have to solve for "t" using the quadratic formula.

    Does this help?
