A steel ball rolls with constant velocity across a tabletop 0.950m high. IT rolls off and hits the ground +0.352m horizontally from the edge of the table. How fast was the ball rolling?

Get the time to fall from the height, H = 0.950 m. Call that time T. You will need to use the acceleration of gravity (g) to compute T.
H = (g/2) T^2
Haven't you seen that equation before for falling bodies?
Then use the relationship
V T = 0.352
to get V

GIVEN:
Vi = 0 m/s
d = 0.950 m > 0.352 m
a = 9.81 m/s^2
t = ?
d = Vit + 1/2 at^2
0.352 = 1/2 (9.82 m/s^2) (t)^2
0.352 = 4.905t^2
> Divide by 4.095
square root  0.071763507 = t^2
0.26 s = t 
1.35 m/s
