(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A hot air balloon has just lifted off and is rising at the constant rate of 1.6 m/s. Suddenly, one of the passengers realizes she has left her camera on the ground. A friend picks it up and tosses it straight upward with an initial speed of 10.8 m/s. If the passenger is 2.5 m above her friend when the camera is tossed, how high is she when the camera reaches her?

2. Relevant equations

i tried using constant acceleration equations but they made no sense :(

3. The attempt at a solution

its 2.8 something... but i just really want to know how to set up the problem!

Thanks
