Hey all 
I seem to be struggling overall with problems that are giving two sets of data and what not, for example 
A ball is thrown upward from the top of a 24.4 m tall building. The ball's initial speed is 12 m/s. At the same instant, a person is running on the ground at a distance of 32.4 m from the building. What must be the average speed of the person if he is to catch the ball at the bottom of the building?
I just sit and look at this problem and I die... any help??
Thanks,

Morgan
