1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A ball is rolled up a constant slope. After 3.6 s it reaches its maximum displacement of 2.6m, and then begins to roll back down. What was the initial velocity of the ball when it started up the slope?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

i know that d=vt of course, but, 2.6=v(3.6), and V would equal 2.6 divided by 3.6 which is .722, and the answer in the key is 1.4m/s?? In all likelihood, its probably something extremely obvious?
