The relevant equations I used were the momentum equations in the x and y direction which are Px = m1v1 = (m1 + m2)vfx and Py = m2v2 = (m1 + m2)vfy. Then I used the equations to find the mag of Vf and the ø of the equation.

I was able to get the ø to be 74.4 in the east of North direction and then I got the Vf = 519.38. I know that thats the Vi for a projectile motion equation but I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. I keep getting answers close to 14 km. What mistakes am I making!?
