Learning isn't always fun, but...

There are 2 ways to solve the problem.

Either:

Use the graph function on the graphing calculator and find the max on the parabola,

or

Derive the function and solve for t=0, then use that time and plug back into the original equation.

h'(t)=-9.8t+292=0

t=29.8 (29.795918....) this is the max height time (s)

h(29.8)=4444.204 this is the max height (m)

fun fact- -9.8 is the acceleration of gravity.
