The golfer wants to hit the ball the same horizontal distance of 130M and 20M above his tee-off point as in Problem 10-32, but in this case, the tee-off point is 10M above the landing spot of the ball. What is the ball's initial velocity.

*10-32 just states the same problem but doesnt have a 10M tee-off point*

Im using the 3 kinematic formulas.

S= VoT + 1/2at²

V=Vo + at

V²=Vo² + 2as

I just dont know where to begin other then to draw a diagram. I understand somewhere in this problem I must use trig functions cos, sin but im seriously stuck here..How do you guys normally tackle these projectile problems...break it down like im a 1st grader!
