Knowing that snow is discharged at an angle of 40 degrees, determine the initial speed, v_{0}of the snow at A. Answer: 6.98 m/s

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have found the x and y velocity and position formulas. Now since I don't know time, should I solve both position equations for time (t) and set them equal to each other to get my only unknown,v? The quadratic equation for time in the y-dir seems a bit hectic. Is there an easier way to go about trying to find v_{i}_{i}?
