(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); An athlete executing a long jump leaves the ground at a 35° angle and travels 5.80 m. What was her takeoff speed?

I was set this question and have spent about an hour trying to solve it but just can't come up with the correct answer. I found this formula:

Angular Velocity w = 2Π / T

35 = (2 x 3.14) / T

T = 0.179

V = D / T

V = 5.80 / 0.179

V = 32.4

But this is wrong...is there another formula I should be using?
