Kinematics: Falling from a Tree

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
While exploring the canopy of the rainforest in equatorial South America, Anastasia falls from a branch 50.0 meters high. Exactly 1.1 seconds later Joe falls from the same branch. How high above the ground is Joe when Anastasia splats into the mud below?


2. Relevant equations
V=Vo + at
X=1/2(Vo -V)T
X=VoT + 1/2at2
V2=Vo2 + 2ax

(If a 2 is after a letter then it means squared)
X=displacement
A=Acceleration
T=Tome
Vo=Initial Velocity
V=Velocity



3. The attempt at a solution
I have no idea.
