The height of a tennis ball is modeled by the equation h(t)=-9.8tsquared+4t+1 where h is the height of the ball in meters and t is the time in seconds, find the maximum height of the ball.

So when we look at the graph, we can find the maximum y value.  This corresponds to the maximum height in meters.  Check out the graph linked below.

at t=.204 the graph obtains its max y value of 1.408m

can you please show the work? Like how you got the graph please

I just graphed it using a graphing calculator using the link provided.  otherwise I would use calculus to find t.
