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

Hi all , I have a problem statement , I know how to solve it but I don't know how to graph velocities so I can use cartesian coordinate and thus have correct answers. Would you please help me ??

A pitcher throws a fastball, which crosses the plate with a speed of 95 mph and an angle of 5° relative to the horizontal. The batter hits it for a home run, launching it with 113 mph at an angle of 35° to the horizontal.

I have never watched a baseball match ! so can you help me ?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

The home plate is the 'fourth base'

You haven't actually posted what the question asks you to do.

Without seeing the question, there's no way of knowing what you're supposed to do. If you've solved it, great, if not and you still need assistance - detail the question.
