Take the x axis to be the original direction of motion of 2kkg ball. The equations expressing the conservation of momentum for the components in the x and y directions separately are

p(x): m1•v = m1•u1•cos α + m2•u2•cos β,

p(y): 0 = m1•u1•sin α - m2•u2•sin β.

cos β = (m1•v - m1•u1•cos α)/ m2•u2,

sin β = m1•u1•sin α/ m2•u2,

sin β/ cos β = tan β = m1•u1•sin α/ m1•v(1-cos α) =

=sin α/ (1-cos α) = 0.5/(1-0.866) = 3.73,

α = arctan 3.73 = 75º.

u1 = m2•u2•sin β / m1•sin α = 3•4•sin75º/2•sin30º = 11.6 m/s.
