a) Derive expressions for the horizontal and vertical components of the displacement of the ball from the point of projection

b) Hence show that the Cartesian equation of the path o the ball is y = x- gx^2/ (V^2)

c) the boy is now standing on a hill inclined at an angle A to the horizontal. He throws the ball at the same angle of elevation of 45 degress and at the same speed of V m/s. If he can throw the ball 60 metres down the hill but only 30 metres up the hill, use the result in part (b) to show that

tan A = 1 - 30gcosA/V^2 = 60gcosA/V^2 -1

and hence that tan A = 1/3

I know how to do a,b but don't know how to do C, please help me
