-----------------

What I did so far:

- I found the velocity in the horizontal and vertical direction which were both 14.14 m/s.

- I found time, using d = vit + 1/2at^2 and I got t=2.94 s.

- I put the time into the equation for horizontal displacement and I got (14.14)(2.94) = 41.6 m.

- I probably did something wrong. =/ Anyway, I've found (or tried to find) the distance of the gorge, but how do I find the distance of the jump &/or solve the rest of the problem?

The horizontal displacement is how far he jumped. The actual width of the Gorge has to come from other information.
