Man jumps over a bench at 7 m/s with angle of 50 respective to the horizontal. Find the total horiztonal distance.

First I broke it down to into Vx and Vy components for -1.8 and 6.7 respectively.

Then I solved for Vy = Vyi + gt which gave me 0.7

This was then multiplied by 2 since 0.7 is for only the first half of the arc. This gave me 1.4

I then solved for X using X = Xi + 1/2 (Vx + Vxi) t which gave me 1.26 m

Is this right?

Thanks
