A 64 kg skater, at rest on frictionless ice, tosses a 12 kg snowball with velocity by v = 53i+ 14.0j m/s, where the x- and y- axes are in the horizontal plane. Find x-component v(x) of the subsequent velocity of the skater. As well as Find y-component v(y) of the subsequent velocity of the skater.

a 12 kg snowball?? That is quite a snowball! Do you mean 12 g?

momentum before = 0 = momentum after
in x direction and in y direction.
