(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Two platforms 50m in height have targets on them. An object succeeds in impacting with both of these.

S=ut + ½ at2 can be rearranged into the form:

½ at2 + ut – s =0

This is a quadratic equation. [ ax2 + bx +c =0 ]

Use this to calculate:

I. The times at which the bird impacts the pigs.

II. How far is each of these platforms from the catapult?

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't know how to put this information into a formula? Can anyone explain please thanks!
