A track star in the long jump goes into the jump at 12 m/s and launches herself at 20 degrees above the horizontal. How long is she in the air before returning to Earth? (g= 9.81 m/s squared)

I tried using some formulas but I'm using all of the wrong formulas for this question. I can work this out if someone can give me the correct formula to use. :)

Thanks!
