#### Explanation:

Let us consider that the

The vertical component of the velocity =

The horizontal component of the velocity =

Let us also consider that the time of flight of the projectile is T

This T time will be required to return the prrojectile to the ground i.e.after this "T"time net vertical displacement is zero

So we can write

Horizontal displacement = distance from point of projection to the point of landing
