I have this problem im doing for college algebra. Its been giving me a lot of trouble and i have know idea how to handle it. the problem is that is a ball that were thrown from the top of a 96 foot building traveling at an initial velocity of 80 ft/s would travel from there all the way to the ground how many seconds would it reach the ground(a) and the top of the building(b)? they also give an equation for that represents the distance travelled (d=96+80t-16t^2) Ive been stuck on the problem for a good while and have now idea how to go by it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
