**1. Homework Statement**

A bowling ball traveling with constant speed hits the pins at the end of a bowling lane 16.5 m long. The bowler hears the sound of the ball hitting the pins 2.60 s after the ball is released from his hands. What is the speed of the ball? The speed of sound is 340 m/s. Answer to the nearest 0.001 m/s.

**2. Homework Equations**

I'm not entirely sure.

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

So, the bowling ball traveled 16.5m down the lane and the sound returned at 340 m/s, all in 2.60 seconds. By that logic, the bowling ball traveled to the end of the lane in 2.60s - the time it took for the sound to return.

That's as far as I've gotten and I'm completely lost. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance :D
