## The Attempt at a Solution

I tried drawing and getting an understanding but that didn't work either. I would just like someone to show me how to get to the answer which is 3.2 minutes, it comes with the question for some reason. To be more exact, like what steps do I need to take in order for me to go into the right direction. What I've done so far is that I've assumed that the 30m/s is the hyptoneuse and the angle right below that is 30 degrees.
