I really need help with this physics problem

So the problem is "A projectile is shot from the edge of a cliff 125m above ground level with an initial speed of 65.0m/s at an angle of 37.0 degrees with the horizontal. (a)Determine the time taken by the projectile to hit point P at ground level. (b)Determine the range X of the projectile as measured from the base of the cliff. (c)At the instant just before the projectile hits point P, find the horizontal and vertical components of its velocity, (d) the magnitude of the velocity, and (e) the angle made by the velocity vector with the horizontal. (f) Find the maximum height above the cliff top reached by the projectile.

Here is the information I know:

X0=0m (initial distance of x)

Vx0=65cos(37) (initial velocity of x)

Y0=125m (initial distance of y)

Y=0m (final distance of y)

Vy0=65sin(37) (initial velocity of y)

g=-9.8 m/s^2 (gravity)
