## Homework Statement

A swimmer dives off a cliff with a running horizontal leap. What must her minimum speed be just as she leaves the top of the cliff so that she will miss the ledge at the bottom which is 1.5 m wide and 9.5m below the top of the cliff.

## Homework Equations

X=V0xT Y=-1/2gt^2

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have X=1.5 and Y=9.5

9.5=-1/2*9.8*t^2

1.5=V0x*t

From there I am lost, I've tried squaring T and so on. Any help is appreciated.
