How do you solve this problem?

  • #1
A load of bricks is being lifted by a crane at a velocity of 5 m/s when one brick falls off 6m above the ground. What is the greatest height the brick reaches above the ground?

How do you solve it?

The attempt at a solution
Since it fell of 6 meters above the ground, the greatest height it reached was 6 meters.

But I'm not sure. Am I missing something?
