Hint 1: I don't think it can be solved without Calculus.

Hint 2: Answer is in the form of an equation without any rounding of any numbers involved.

Considering I haven't taken Calculus yet I don't know the right way to approach this problem.

I think it means that the max possible x-component of velocity is v. But it is worded a bit vaguely.

edit: and a similar statement for y, separately.

edit again: never mind, I am being stupid. I thought there was a problem, but there is not.

edit number 3: yeah, my mistake was thinking the question gave the max values of components of velocity. But it does not. It gives upper bounds.

Could you please explain your reasoning here?The particle has maximum speed [itex]\sqrt{2} v[/itex]
