A star in the long jump goes into the jump at 12 m/s and launches herself at 20.0 degrees above the horizontal. How long is she in the air before returning to Earth? (g=9.81 m/s2)

2. Relevant equations

first I look for the v0(cos) and then I look for vfy= v0(sin)

I used vfy/g and I don't get the answer. I have the answer which is .83 s

but I can't get it on my own...

3. The attempt at a solution

I used vfy/g to get the time, but I don't get the correct answer I get .4
