Story problem help please! Thanks!

An object is projected vertically upward with an initial velocity of v0 ft/sec, and its distance s(t) in feet above the ground after t seconds is given by the formula s(t) = −16t2 + v0t.
(a) If the object hits the ground after 10 seconds, find its initial velocity v0.
v0 = ??? ft/sec

(b) Find its maximum distance above the ground.
s(t) = ???ft
