    Step-by-step explanation:

    We want to find when h (t) = 0

    0 = - 8t^2 + 32t

    factor out a - 8t

    0 = - 8t (t-4)

    Using the zero product property

    -8t = 0 and t-4=0

    t = 0 and t=4

    t=0 is when it is dropped and t=4 is when it lands

    The maximum height is halfway in between

    (0+4) / 2
