Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give a little help on this problem. I can't figure out where to begin!

An Olympic long jumper leaves the ground at an angle of 23 degrees and travels through the air for a horizontal distance of 8.7m before landing. What is the take off speed of the jumper?

Thanks!!
