    Resolve the speed, 49m/s, into horizontal and vertical components.
    Using the vertucal componet, find the time taken to reach max height and then to reach thre ground again.
    Us this time in your eqn of motion with the horizontal velocity.
    You should then have eqns/relationships involving the angle alpha to give you that final answer.
    Have you done any of that yet?

    You can express the x and y displacements of the golf ball parametrically:

    -3/4/15=49sin(alpha)T-g/2T^2....(1)
    98=49cos(alpha)T................ .....(2)

    so from (2) T=98/49cos(alpha)

    sub. into (1) and simplify to give the required expression.



    (I've checked it and it works).

    ah yes i was using positive 3/4/15,but why is it negative

    because you are taking its initial position as the origin and 'up' as positive displacement.
