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

A cannon fires a projectile

Velocity = 40 m/s

The angle of the cannon= 35 degrees

solve for Vx= V*cos(angle)

and Vy=V*sin(angle)

I am having a problem understand this concept relative to what the screenshot below shows

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

When I try to solve this problem I get this

Vx=40(cos(35))

= -36.147

But that's impossible. I think I'm doing it wrong.
