The diver's height above the water can be modeled by the function h=-5t^2+10t+40, where h is height in meters and t is time in seconds. Find the time it takes the diver to reach the water. ---------- He reaches the water when h = 0 h=-5t^2+10t+40 -5t^2+10t+40 = 0 ----- Solve for t Ignore the negative solution.
