While exploring the canopy of the rainforest in equatorial South America, Anastasia falls from a branch 43.0 meters high. Exactly 1.6 seconds later Joe falls from the same branch. How high above the ground is Joe when Anastasia splats into the mud below?

time to fall Aastasia; h=1/2 g t^2 solve for t.
Now, subtract 1.6 from that. That gives the falling time for Joe.
h'=431/2(9.8)t^2 
thanks!
