The equation y = -6t^2 + 83t describes the height (in feet) of a projectile seconds after it is launched from the surface of Mars at 83 feet per second. In how many seconds will the projectile first reach \(44\) feet in height? Express your answer as a decimal rounded to the nearest tenth.

1. Make the quadratic

\(44=-6t^2+83t\)

2. solve the quadratic
