I cannot view the image you sent me. Is there another form by which you can send me the solution to Kinematics #15e? Thank you.

Algebraically, how can you isolate H? Could you also set 600m equal to (answer of 15d) - (answer of 15e) and solve for h? I couldn't work out the algebra.

Algebraically, separating out H would be a bit of a chore, and not one I really have the time to dive into right now (which is why the problem states that calculators are recommended).

I wish I could figure out what to input into the calculator without first deriving an expression for H.

Depends on what type of calculator you have.  I use the "Solver" on my TI-85, but there are similar functions on most modern graphing calculators.  On my TI-89 it looks like it's the "Numeric Solver."  On the TI-84 it's under Math --> Solver.
