What is the approximate horizontal distance traveled by a soccer ball that is kicked at an angle of 30 degrees with an initial speed of 60 feet per second?

a) 84 ft
b) 88 ft
c) 93 ft
d) 97 ft
e) 105 ft

==> I tried solving it by solving for x in the equation cos30 = x/60, x being the horizontal distance, but I got 50-something feet so it's not the correct method. How would I solve this problem? Any help is greatly appreciated! :)
