# A rocket is launched at 85 feet per second from a launch pad that is 28 feet above the ground. What equation can you use to determine the height of the rocket at a given time after the launch?

Oct 3, 2017

$h = 85 t + 28$
Let $h =$ height, in feet
Let $t =$ time in seconds
For every second the rocket travels, it goes $85$ feet plus an additional $28$ feet from the launch pad.
