An athlete executing a long jumper leaves the ground at a 27.0 degree angle and travels 7.89 m. What was the takeoff speed? If this speed were increased by just 5.0%, how much longer would the jump be?

I came up with a take off speed of 27.4 but the system is saying that is the incorrect answer. Please help!!
