A paperboy is riding at 10 ft/s on a bicycle and tosses a paper over his left shoulder at 50 ft/s. If the porch is 50 ft off the road, how far up the street should the paperboy release the paper to hit the porch?
So i drew a diagram that looks like a right triangle (attached)
I found the hypotenuse of the triangle to be
I figured if after he threw the paper at that speed then he would need to throw it before the porch.
It seems pretty far but i wasnt too sure about how else to go about this problem
Thank you for any help
