1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A tiger leaps horizontally from a 5.5 m high rock with a speed of 3.1 m/s.

So I know

Height=5.5 meters

Initial Velocity=3.1 m/s

2. Relevant equations

How far from the base of the rock will she land?

3. The attempt at a solution

I honestly have no idea how to attempt this problem. The only equation I can think of is requires me to know what theta is to find the distance and I don't know how to find it. I don't want an answer I just wanna know how I'd go about finding it.
