Here is the problem: "A passenger in a convertible throws a ball up into the air. The car is going 35.0 m/s. The upward velocity of the ball is 8.00 m/s. Give the equations which specify the ball position at any given time with respect to the passenger (prime values) and respect to an observer on the road (un prime values)."(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is my problem . . . The teacher told us that in (x, y, z) and (x', y', z'), y and y' are the same. He told us that x = x' + vt and x' = x - vt. However, we weren't given t or t' so I cannot find x or x', and I absolutely have no clue how to find z or z'. Can someone give me hints or something? Thanks!
