1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
A ball is thrown with a speed of 70m/s and hits the top of a wall which is 20m tall and 100m away. Find the angle that the ball was thrown at


2. Relevant equations
d= V0xt + 1/2 a t^2
a = Vf-V0/t
sin^2(theta) = 1 - cos^2 (theta)

3. The attempt at a solution
I found the initial velocity in terms of theta V= 70cos(theta) x + 70sin(theta) y
the part i'm stuck on is apparently we are supposed to find the time from the horizontal displacement somehow. That i am stuck on because it seems like a i have too many variables and not enough information. any help is appriciated
