a baseball is thrown at an angle of 25 degrees relative to the ground at a speed of 23.0m/s. If the ball was caught 42 m from the thrower, how long was it in the air? how high did the ball travel before being caught?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

using x=(VicoxA)t --> 42/(23*cos25) i got 4.32

and than using y=(23*sin25)4.32+1/2(-9.81)(4.32)^2 i got -49.5 >>y=(VisinA)t+1/2a(t)^2)

but in the back of the book it says its wrong so can someone please tell me what i did wrong?
