When will the baton be back at the twirler's level? After how many seconds will the baton reach its maximum height? :)Answer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!0=20t-5t^2 __ factoring __ 0=t(20-5t) t=0 __ this is the starting position 20-5t=0 __ 20=5t __ 4=t __ this is the return to the start time up=time down __ so max height is at 4/2 or 2 sec
