    Answer:

    The object hits the ground after 3.52 seconds.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    The height of the object after t seconds is given by the following function:

    h(t) = -16t^2 + 198

    When will the object hit the ground?

    It hits the ground when h(t) = 0. So

    -16t^2 + 198 = 0

    16t^2 = 198

    t^2 = \frac{198}{16}

    t^2 = 12.375

    t = \pm \sqrt{12.375}

    Since time is a positive measure, we only take the positive value

    t = 3.52

    The object hits the ground after 3.52 seconds.
