Approximately

#### Explanation:

I assume that the projectile was launched from flat ground.

Range of a projectile is given by the equation:

where:

#d# is the total distance traveled

#v# is the initial velocity

#theta# is the angle of incline

#g# is the gravitational acceleration, which is#9.8 \ "m/s"^2# on Earth

So, we get:
