(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An archer stands 39.0 m from the target. If the arrow is shot horizontally with a velocity of 86.0 m/s, how far above the bull's-eye must he aim to compensate for gravity pulling his arrow downward?

2. Relevant equations

d=vit + at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I ended up getting 2.01m but am sure if that is correct and would like to know if im not how to go about this, since it is confusing, when you dont know what formulas should/can be used
