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.

distance ball= distance pete

50ft/s (t-2)=25ft/sec * t

solve for t.

**Cathy**, Monday, September 17, 2007 at 9:32pmI don't understand...do you take 50(t-2)=25*t? If so, I didn't come out with the right answer on question one for the same distance.

I just have a hard time understanding these comparison problems.
