1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A drone drops a bomb from a height of 3500 ft. The bomb travels 875 feet horizontally while it drops. What is the velocity of the drone and the bomb at the time of the drop? Direction is 0 degrees.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

*sigh* I'm afraid I don't have any work to submit with this one; I just can't seem to figure out how to work this problem... I've re-read it multiple times, and I'm uncertain how to go about doing it. I've looked at a similar type of problem, though the data included speed; this, I'm unsure how to work.

You should at least be able to write down some relevant equations. What type of motions are involved?

I'm thinking the equation to use may be Δx=vot+½at^2

Sure, that's a start.

You have both vertical and horizontal motion involved. Apply your knowledge of projectile motion and use that equation appropriately for both.
