A superhero is leaping from the roof of one building onto another. The first building is 120 meters high and the second building is 80 meters high. The horizontal velocity of the superhero is 12.0 m/s. What is the maximum possible distance between buildings that the hero can leap across?

what time does it take to fall 40 meters?
40= 1/2 g t^2 solve for t.
Then, distance in that time is
d=12*t
can he make it?
