ball thrown horizontally from roof of building 55.0m tall and lands 29.7m from the base. find balls initial speed

2. Relevant equations

(√acceleration/[√2*55] ) * 29.7=8.86

3. The attempt at a solution

(sqroot acceleration/[2*55] ) * 29.7=8.86

the answer is correct..I am confused how it is that i can get to this formula.

I am confused to what "29.7m from the base" means

thanks all

*this is my first time posting, I hope i am doing it correct
