A basketball leaves a player's hands at a height of 2.20 m above the floor. The basket is 2.80 m above the floor. The player likes to shoot the ball at a 36 degree angle. If the shot is made from a horizontal distance of 9.00 m and must be accurate to -.22 +.22 m (horizontally), what is the range of initial speeds allowed to make the basket?
