I worked this out to eventually get to vx = 9.4, giving the pelican's speed.

Now the part that's giving me trouble is this:

If the pelican is traveling at the same speed, but only 3.3 m above the water, how far would the fish travel horizontally before hitting the water below? I used the same format that I did about, and switched the dY to -3.3 m...I got the answer and put that as my answer in the online homework service we use. It said the first part was correct, but this part is wrong. Anoybody see what I'm doing wrong?
