physics

A stone is thrown straight up from the ground with an initial speed of 26.6 m/s. At the same instant, a stone is dropped from a height of "h" (a variable) meters above ground level. The two stones strike the ground simultaneously. Find the height "h" (a variable). The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/(s^2)
Answer in units of m.
