## The Attempt at a Solution

I ended up with this:

0.95 = Vx1*cos50 + Vx2*cos40

and

0= Vy1*sin50 - Vy2*sin40

I know that both momentum and energy are conserved in elastic collision but I got no idea how to actually apply the concept. I think i'm looking too much into it and missing something simple. Thanks
