hey hey.. I need help again. I can't belive i've forgotten my simple algebra. Anyway.. is there a way to solve the following without using the quadratic equation?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

0 = (22)t + 1/2(-9.8)t^2

I'm tryin to isolate t, so i can solve for time. I know you can factor it out as follows..

0 = [22 + 1/2(-9.8)t]t

Thats where I am stuck... how do i get this in the form.. t = xxxxx

Thanks for the help..
