Leaves the ground at a 33.6 degree angle and travels at 7.77 m. What is take off speed?

If speed were increased by 4% how much longer would the jump be?

2. Relevant equations

Vx=Vcos(theta)

3. The attempt at a solution

7.77=vcos33.6 got 9.33 but says it wrong, then I added 4% to this and did 9.7cos33.6 which also seems to be wrong..what am I missing?
