A ball is thrown from the top edge of a building with initial velocity components of 15m/s(up) vertically and 20m/s horizontally. It strikes ground 140m from the base of the building. What is the height of the building?

I tried using V2^2 = V1^2 + 2ad and it gave me 11.25 which I know is wrong. How would I calculate this?
