In the flying ski jump, a skier acquires a speed of about 62 mph (this ended up being 27.7 m/s) by racing down a steep hill and then lifts off into the air off of a horizontal ramp. Beyond the ramp, the ground slopes at an angle of 45 degrees.

a) Predict the distance downslope from the ramp that the skier lands.
