Answer:

D

Step-by-step explanation:

At the maximum height, the value of the vertical velocity Vy equals zero. From the value of the equation, we can get the vertical velocity by its first differential.

Differentiating this, we get -32x + 64

We then equate this value to zero. This yield 32x = 64 and x = 2

We now plug the value of x back into the original expression for height.

-16(2)^2 + 64(2) + 80 = -64 + 128 + 80 = 144 feet
