Question

Emilio throws a marshmallow into the air from his balcony. The height of the marshmallow (in feet) is represented by the equation h=−16(t−14)2+49, where t is the time (in seconds) after he throws the marshmallow. How long after Emilio throws the marshmallow does it reach its maximum height?

Answer:

Step-by-step explanation:

−16t^2+8t+48 = 0

– 2t^2 + t + 6 = 0

Multiplying through by the negative sign. It becomes

2t^2 – t – 6 = 0

2t^2 + 3t – 4t – 6 = 0

t(2t + 3) – 2(2t + 3) = 0

(t – 2)(2t + 3) = 0

t – 2 = 0 or 2t + 3 = 0

t = 2 or t = – 3/2

The time cannot be negative

So it will take 2 seconds to hit the ground
