The equation y = -16^2 + 26t + 105 describes the height (in feet) of a ball tossed up in the air at 26 feet per second from a height of 105 above the ground. In how many seconds will the ball hit the ground? express your answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest tenth.

When the ball hits the ground, the height, y, will be 0

0 = -16t2 +26t + 105        a = -16     b = 26     c = 105   in quadratic formula

\(t = {-b \pm \sqrt{b^2-4ac} \over 2a}\)        throw out any negative value for 't' that you find......

THAT is what was explained.....   sub in the values of   a  b   c   into the quadrtaic formula to calculate 't' when the ball hits the ground....

    you are familiar with the Quadratic Formula ...yah?
