To many this would be a simple plug it into equation problem. But for some reason this just isn't clicking for me. Here's the problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An open elevator is ascending with a constant speed V of 32ft/sec. A ball is thrown straight up by a boy in the elevator when it is a height h of 100 feet above the ground. The initial speed of the ball with repect to the elevator is Vo= 64ft/sec. (A) What is the maximum height attained by the ball? (B) How long does it take for the ball to return to the elevator?

I don't know where to start or what to plug in, please help me out, much appreciated and thanks.
