Tyler is on the 15th floor of a building. She throws a ball straight down from the window, which is 220 feet above the ground. How fast must she throw the ball(in feet per second) for it to hit the ground in 3 seconds?

d = Vo*t + 0.5gt^2 = 220Ft.
3Vo + 0.5 * 32 * 3^2 = 220,
3Vo + 144 = 220,
3Vo = 220  144 = 76,
Vo = 25.33 Ft/s.
