When Joe dives off a diving board, the equation of his pathway can be modeled by h=-16t^2+15t+12. Find the time it will take to reach the water. Solve using the quadratic formula.

I've answered this a bunch of times but I am not getting numbers that could represent a time. Can someone plz show how this works step by step? The unit is seconds, I think, even though it is not specified.
