Thanks CPhill, follow up question:

 

A ball travels on a parabolic path in which the height (in feet) is given by the expression -16t^2+32t+15, where t is the time after launch. What is the maximum height of the ball?

In the form ax^2 + bx + c.....the x coordinate of the max height occurs at

 

-b / [ 2a]  =  -32 / [ 2 (-16) ]  =  1

 

So.....the max height is   -16(1)^2 + 32(1) + 15  =  31 ft
