A DAREDEVIL JUMPS A CANYON 12 METERS WIDE. TO DO SO HE DRIVES A CAR UP A 15 DEGREE INCLINE.

a. WHAT IS THE MINIMUM SPEED HE MUST ACHIEVE IN ORDER TO CLEAR THE CANYON?
B. IF THE DAREDEVIL JUMPS AT THIS MINIMUM SPEED WHAT WILL HIS SPEED BE WHRN HE REACHES THE OTHER SIDE?

Write the horizontal and vertical equation. In the horizontal equation, solve for time in terms of the other constants and speed. Plug that expression into the vertical equation for time, and solve for speed. Use the quadratic equation.
