Bill threw a shot put with an initial speed of 12m/s at an angle of 35 degress to the horizontal. He released the shot put at a height of 1.5 meters. How far did he throw the shot put? If he could have changed the angle of his throw, at what angle would he had attained the maximum distance, and would would that distance have been?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I got the how far question, but I'm confused on how to find the maxium distance and angle. Anyone have any tips? Please don't solve it for me (I don't know if you guys do that here, but I'd like to figure that out on my own), I just need to know how to find it.
