An enemy ship is on the western side of a mountain island. The enemy ship can maneuver to within 2520 m of the 1850 m high mountain peak and can shoot projectiles with an initial speed of 260 m/s. If the eastern shoreline is horizontally 305 m from the peak, what is the minimum distance from the eastern shore at which a ship can be safe from the bombardment of the enemy ship?

    Are you serious? If I knew how to get started I wouldn't be here. There are actually 2 more parts to the question that I didn't even post, because I just needed help with the first part. And for the record my name is Jeremy.
