A creature on the moon throws a rock off a cliff. The height of the rock above the surface of the moon, in meters, t seconds after it is thrown is given by h(t)=-t^2 +8t+10. When does the rock hit the surface of the moon?

The rock hits the surface when the height is 0, or when

t^2-8t-10=0

Use the quadratic formula: t = -1.099 and 9.099. Time can't be negative, so the answer is t = 9.099.
