#### Solution Preview

Please see the attachment to see how you can resolve velocity vector in to components.

<br>

<br>The horizontal range is determined by the horizontal component of the velocity which is Vx and the maximum height is determined by the y component of the velocity Vy

<br>

<br>Vx = V Cos(A) ...
