    hmm could it be \[V_2 ^2 = V_1 + 2as\] where s is the distance

    correction.. \[V_2 ^2 = V_1^2 + 2as\]

    V is velocity? a is acceleration? s is displacement?

    so first find the acceleration using v = 0 u = v s = X

    now use v^2 = u^2 + 2as again this time use: v = 0 u = 3v a = -v^2/2X

    starting with 0=9v^2+2aX -9v^2/2a=X -9v^2/2(-v^2/2X)=X 9X=X now what?

    \[0 = 9v^2 + 2as\] \[-9v^2 = 2as\] \[-\frac{9v^2}{2a} = s\] \[-\frac{9v^2}{2(-\frac{v^2}{2X})} = s\] \[\implies -\frac{9v^2}{-\frac{v^2}{X}} = s\] \[\implies 9X= s\]
