### Question Description:

A blue ball is thrown upward with an initial speed of 19.6 m/s, from a height of 0.5 meters above the ground. 2.4 seconds after the blue ball is thrown, a red ball is thrown down with an initial speed of 8 m/s from a height of 21.9 meters above the ground. The force of gravity due to the earth results in the balls each having a constant downward acceleration of 9.81 m/s2. What is the height of the red ball 3.12 seconds after the blue ball is thrown?
