(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that a gun will shoot three times as high wehn its angle of elevation is 60deg as when it is 30deg but will carry the same horizontal distance.

2. Relevant equations

s=(Vo +Vf)/2 * t

x=Vo*costheta *t

3. The attempt at a solution

AFter simplifying the equation i get:

y=0.25tan30x

y=0.25tan60x

is this correct?
