Homework Help: Word Problem

Posted by Lacey on Monday, September 17, 2007 at 8:56pm.

A quarterback and end play on their team. From the start of a play, Pete, the end, runs down the field at about 25 feet per second. Two seconds after the play starts, Phil, the quarterback, throws the ball, at about 50 feet per second, to Pete, who is still running.

I need help setting the problem up-

How long after Phil throws the ball will Pete catch it?

How far will Pete be from where the ball was thrown?

Thanks.
