## The Attempt at a Solution

Stuck for the most part, I tried to divide into horizontal and vertical components.

__horizontal__

vo = 25

v =

Δx = 50

a = 0

t =

__vertical__

vo = 0

v =

Δy = find

g = 9.8

t =

Would I have to find Δy from the vertical component? Or is there something else I have to do?
