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

I need help finding the x and y components of initial velocity being given the angle the trajectory was fired at and the distance the projectile traveled. For this example I'm using an angle of 15° and the projectile travels 0.534m. I'm not sure if I'm going in the right direction in trying to solve this problem.

2. Relevant equations

Vx = Vcos(angle)

Vy = Vsin(angle)

x -x initial = Vx * t

3. The attempt at a solution

Solved those to get: Vx = Vcos(15) and Vy = Vsin(15).

After pluggin Vx into the equation, I'm having trouble figuring out where to go from here. Any help is appreciated.
