A rhinoceros is at the origin of coordinates at time t_1=0. For the time interval from t_1 to t_2 = 11.0 s, the rhino's average velocity has x-component −3.40 m/s and y-component 5.00 m/s.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

it asks for At time t_{2}= 11.0 s what is the y-coordinate of the rhino?

i already found the x coordinate which is -37.4 now i tried pluging in the initial velocity of the y coordinate 5 m/s. into this equatioon

distance= initial postion( which is zero)+ initial velocity times the time(which is equals to 55m)+ 1/2 times 9.81*t^2

if the acceleration is -, then the answer should be -538m

if its not then its postive then it should be 648m. but it says im wrong on both accounts.
