At the top, vertical velocity is zero.

Vtop=Vivertial-gt

so time to top= Vivertial/g=Vsin60 /g

then solve for V

Now how far: You have to find vertical time in air.

hf=hi+Vivertical*t-1/2 g t^2

0=23+Vsin60* t-1/2 g t^2

solve for t, time in air. Use the quadratic formula.

Now distance: distance= Vhoriz*timeinair

where vhoriz= Vcos60
