**1. Homework Statement**

A ball, dropped from rest, covers three-fifths of the distance to the ground in the last second of its fall. From what height was the ball dropped?

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I have spent the past thirty minutes attempting to figure this out. I initially used a kinematic equation which gave me a new expression for the height and I attempted to put that expression into another kinematic equation but I still cannot seem to arrive at the correct answer.

Any advice or help on this would be appreciated!
