Velocity of projectiles: Bullet horizontal velocity, distance to ground

Q. a 4kg object resting on a pole 8m tall is struck by a 20 gram bullet, which is moving horizontally at 200 m/sec. the bullet remains embedded in the object.

a. What horizontal velocity does the object acquire?
b. How far from the base of the pole does the object strike the ground?
