Height Function

The height in feet h above the earth for sky divers t seconds after jumping from an airplane flying at a height of 6400 feet above the ground is approximated by the formula:
h(t)=-16t2+6400
subject to the constraint t < 5
Rewrite the formula with the right-hand side factored completely.
Use the result of rewriting the formula to find h(2).
Show your work; discuss your reasoning.
