Per forum rules, you must show an attempt.
Your diagram has the water coming out horizontally. Are you assuming that?
Would you find it easier if it were throwing a stone? For a given angle, speed and height of throw, how far away would it land?

Thank you for your reply,
unfortunately I have no clue how to attempt this question therefore I have not attempted it. The water is indeed coming out horizontally.

What equations have you been taught for constant acceleration. SUVAT?
