When I work this problem I get an answer different from what's given not sure why?
A basketball is launched with an initial speed of 8.8 m/s and follows the trajectory shown. The ball enters the basket 0.98 s after it is launched. What are the distances x and y? Note: The drawing is not to scale.

Question 6 options:

A)
x = 5.7 m; y = 1.0 m

B)
x = 5.9 m; y = 1.2 m

C)
x = 6.1 m; y = 1.4 m

D)
x = 6.3 m; y = 1.6 m

E)
x = 6.5 m; y = 1.8 m
