A  juggler  throws  a  ball  into  the  air  at  an
initial  height  of  4  feet  with  an  initial
vertical  velocity  of  40  ft/sec.    If  the  juggler
catches  the  ball  again  at  a  height  of  3  feet,
how  long  was  the  ball  in  the  air?

At  what  time  is  the  ball  at  its  maximum
height?

What  is  the  ball’s  maximum  height?
