    So...

    t0 = 2
    t2 = 3.81
    t∞ = 12

    h = A - Be-kt
    2 = A - B
    3.81 = A - Be-2k
    12 = A - Be-k

    ...How do I proceed this question?

    Thanks..

    The first thing you notice is that A is 12 I believe as when t = infinity  \frac{B}{e^kt} becomes closer and closer to zero and as the maximum height is 12 then A has to equal 12
