Let ball is thrown with initial velocity 'V'=8 m/s

Since, it is launched at angle 20 degrees below horizontal,

The initial horizontal velocity

Vx= Vcos(20)=8cos(20)=7.52 m/s

The initial vertical velocity

Vy= -Vsin(20)=-2.74 m/s

In the horizontal direction velocity constant,

Horizontal distance=(Vx)×(Time)

Horizontal distance=(7.52)×(3)=22.55 m

Hence ball lands at distance 22.55m from base.
