Here is a link to the question:I need help with Trig/Physics?

My Trigonometry class is currently working on some physics related math and I have a hard time understanding how to do the problem. My teacher said the textbook did not explain it properly and to use the notes we took instead. I wasn't there for the notes so again my understanding decreases. The problem is as follows:

"Andrew is attempting the longest field goal of his career. The field goal post is a distance of 20 meters from where he will kick the ball, and the cross bar on the post is 2 meters above the ground. Will Andrew make the field goal if he kicks the football with enough force to give it an initial velocity of 15 m/s at an angle of 45 degrees above the ground? By what height does he make or miss the field goal?"

If someone could help me out and guide me through the problem solving process I would really appreciate it. Thank you!
