The height h, in feet, of a golf ball t seconds after it has been hit is given by the equation h = −16t2 + 62t. How many seconds after the ball is hit will the height of the ball be 42 feet? Round answers to nearest hundredth.

h = −16t2 + 62t.

h=42

42= −16t2 + 62t

-16t^2 + 62t -42 = 0

-8t^2 + 31t - 21 = 0

delta = 31²- 672 = 961 - 672 = 289 > 0

so : t1 = (-31 - 1.002 )/(-16) = 2.0005

or t2= (-31 + 1.002 )/(-16) = 1.87

So t = 2 s

good luck and please if you need sommething else please tell me first
