## Homework Statement

A skier leaves the ramp of a ski jump with a velocity of v = 8.0 m/s, θ = 15.0° above the horizontal, as in the figure. The slope is inclined at 50.0°, and air resistance is negligible. (Assume up and right are positive, and down and left are negative.)

(a) Find the distance from the ramp to where the jumper lands.

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

what I am coming up with is

dcos50=(8cos15)t deltaX=Vxi(t)

-dsin50=(8sin15)t+.5(-9.8)t^2 deltaY=Vyt+.5(g)t^2

im stuck at how to solve for d and t. and i have to have this done by 11:30 :-) any helps on cracking this is more than appreciated. i think I am supposed to solve for one of them and then plug it into the other equation but I am not sure how to do that
