The height of a soccer ball that is kicked from the ground can be approximated by the function:y = -12x^2 + 48x where y is the height of the soccer ball in feet x seconds after it is kicked. What is the soccer ball's maximum height in feet?

Maximum height will occur at TIME = -b/2a = -48/(2*(-12)) = 2 seconds

Use this value of x in the equation to calculate the height .....
