 Question 268286: Please help with this problem, this is what I have so far: Problem: Height of a projected ball, An astronaut on the moon throws a baseball upward. The astronaut is 6ft., 6in. tall, and the initial velocity of the ball is 30 ft. per sec. The height S of the ball in feet is given by the equation S= -2.7t^2 + 30t + 6.5 where t is the number of seconds after the ball was thrown. A.) After how many seconds is the ball 12ft above the moon's surface? Round to the nearest hundreth. I know I have to look for the seconds, which is t so then I have to solve for S, the height. This is have I've got so far: 12 = 2.7t^2 + 30t + 6.5 -12 -12 ------------------------ 0 = 2.7t^2 + 30t - 5.5 B.)How many seconds will it take fore the ball to return to the surface? Round to the nearest hundredth. So on the second part of the equation I have to look for the time, so that means that I have to solve for the height... Thanks for your help in advance.
