Question 4: projectile motion

Back on earth, Jimmy wants to catch a water balloon. He stands 12.5m from the end of the launch position, and his hands are 1.1m above the top of the launcher. The water balloon is launched at an angle of 35.0* to the horizontal. The horizontal component of the velocity is 10.0 m/s. By first showing that the vertical component o the velocity is 7 m/s, determine if the water balloon will arrive at the right position for Jimmy to catch it.

how would I solve this problem?
