final momentum in x direction = M* v(x) = m1*v1(x) + m2*v2(x)

final momentum in y direction = M* v(y) = m1*v1(y) + m2*v2(y)

u know M=m1+m2, m1,m2 and v1 and v2.

find v(x) and v(y).

Physics Monkey said:what does conservation of momentum say?

That is a description of the conditions under which conservation of momentum applies. It is not a description of the actual principle of conservation of momentum.jmill5504 said:

Conservation of momentum means that the total momentum of the two objects before the collision equals the total momentum of the two objects after the collision.

By the way, on a completely different subject, it really helps people here a lot if you put something in your thread's subject line that indicates what your question is
