The problem statement, all variables and given/known datasomeone standing on a down-tilting inclined plane making an angle of 30 degrees with the horizontal throws a ball with a horizontal velocity of 10m/s, how far down the plane will the ball strike ground

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solutionI was just wondering if i could just tilt the axis, so that my horizontal coordinate is now 10cos30degrees and my y coordinate is 10sin30degrees-gt?

then i plug can just use 10 for the Range equation and find when it hits the ground, so R= 10sin2(30degrees)/g? so i worked it out and came up with about 8.83 meters? is this way faulty?
