A person can jump a maximum horizontal
distance (by using a 45 percent projectile angle) of 3 m on Earth. The acceleration of gravity is 9.8 m/s2. What would be his maximum range on the Moon, where the freefall acceleration is g/6 ?
Answer in units of m

I believe that if the acceleration decreases by a factor of 1/6, then the time will increase by a factor of 6. Therefore, the distance should be 18m.
