your teacher tosses a basketball. the ball gets through the hoop(lucky shot). the man stand 2.746 m and the throws the ball at an angle of 53 degrees with a velocity of 16 m/s, the hoop is 3.048 m.

note: the distance he is from the hook is not given.

the time it takes for the ball to reach its max height is 1.3, but how do you figure out long it takes to get to the hoop, then the next question is what is l being the length from the hoop

My issues: is the ball hits the hoop before it reaches the end of the parobola so how do you calculate that with the information given.
