A monkey is hanging from a branch located exactly 24 meters along the ground from the hunter. The monkey is 14 meters above the ground. The hunter aims directly at the monkey and fires a water balloon at the monkey just as the monkey releases his grip. The balloon has an initial velocity of 40m/s.

A. How long until the balloon reaches the monkey
B. At what height above the ground will the monkey be hit by the balloon.
C. At what speed should the balloon be launched so that the monkey is hit by the balloon exactly 3 meters above the ground.

My answers: For A I got .695 seconds
For B I got 11.6 meters
For C I got 35.4 m/s 12.6 degrees above the ground.

Could you check my answers? Thank you!
