so far i got:Quote:

A basketball player who is2.00 mtall is standing on the floorL = 13.0 mfrom the basket, as in the figure below. If he shoots the ball at a 35.0° angle with the horizontal, at what initial speed must he shoot the basketball so that it goes through the hoop without striking the backboard? The basket height is3.05 m.

$\displaystyle 1.05 = V_o sin(35)(\frac{13}{V_o cos(35)}) + \frac{1}{2}(-9.8)(\frac{13}{V_o cos(35)})^2$

need help solving for $\displaystyle V_o$
