    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    A young student, dissatisfied with simply dropping fruit, decides to throw an apricot off a cliff. The apricot leaves the top of the cliff at a speed of 25 m/s and at an angle of 50° above the horizon. If the cliff is 310m tall, how far down range is the fruit when it hits the ground? (Neglect air resistance, and note that the Cos50 is .643 and the Sin50 is .766)
