hey guys i'm kinda new to this forum and was wondering if you could help me on this fluid question i was having;

Fig. 15-47 shows a stream of water flowing through a hole at depth h = 17 cm in a tank holding water to height H = 43 cm. (a) At what distance x does the stream strike the floor? (b) At what depth should a second hole be made to give the same value of x? (c) At what depth should a hole be made to maximize x?

i dont know if u guys are gonna get the picture but its just a can with a height of H and a hole on its right side with the distance h from the top, and the water spills a distance of x away from the can

2. Relevant equations

well i tried to use bernoulli's equation for part a, but am stuck on part b and c

3. The attempt at a solution

well i used a combination of bernoulli's equation, liquid continuity equation and also simple projectile motion to find that th water falls 0.42 metres away from the can, but really have no clue what to do for part b and c.....if u guys can help it would be really awsome
