**Velocity using quadratic formula- NEED HELP PLEASE!**

Here is the problem:

An osprey is flying over a reservoir with a trout in her talons. Her speed is 4.21 mph and the reservoir is 12.76 feet below. She is flying at an angle of 15.32 degrees

**below**the horizontal-

A- Calculate the trout's range, that is, how far does the trout travel horizontally before splashing? Neatly show your work with units; solve all equations with symbols and substitute numbers as the last step. You will need to use the quadratic equation.

B- Calculate the trout's final velocity, that is the VECTOR velocity (magnitude and direction) when the trout splashes.

(It needs to be in meters/second so all numbers need to be converted.)

There is no diagram, I have to draw one. I have no idea how to post it. I don't even know where to start with this one. I just need to be pointed in the right direction PLEASE!
