I found this interesting problem on the internet, but I think there is not enough infromation to solve.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"At the 1998 Punkin Chunkin World Championship, a pneumatically-driven device called the "Aludium Q36 Pumpkin Modulator" was able to project a 3.6-4.5 kg (8-10 pound) pumpkin intact for a total distance of 1227.23 m (4026.32 feet, how many feet are in a mile?). What was the muzzle velocity (magnitude and direction) of the record-setting pumpkin?"

Most range formula problems give you 2 of the 3 variables to solve for the third R, v_{o}or Θ

Any help would be appreciated.
