Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

time taken for the egg to given by

s(t) = (1/2)gt^2, where s is the vertically downward distance travelled by the  ball from the top of the building in time t seconds.

S the time to reach the ground t is given by the equation when s(t) = 100 feet

100 = (1/2)*9.8*t^2
t^2 = (200/9.8)
t = sqrt(200/9.8) = 4.518 sec

distance ran by me in 4.518 sec = 20*4.518 = 90.36 feet

so, I should be standing at 9.36 feet to catch the egg.

Let me know incase you need any further help ! Thanks :)
