    Lol me too! I worked it out in the end. But I solved 4.9T^2 -3T -1.8=0 to t=0.985 and then did v=u+at like you did to get 1.2 seconds. Added them together to get 2.19 seconds
    Thanks for the pic of your working out
    Ah sh*t, just realised I still had 1.99 in my working out. You know what I meant!
