That is incorrect. You're free to attempt to answer this problem as many times as you please though.

stupid question. it could be travelling at any speed seeing you have not given any indication at what rate of speed the ball was thrown or the period it was in the air for it could have travelled 100m in 1 sec or 2 or 3 before being caught and those would asll give different speeds

stop trfyingh to be clever i tool ...as i already said u have not given any speed functions in your question. IT could have travelled at 50m/sec and travelled and caught in 2 secs ...it could have travelled at 25m/sec and was caught after travelling for 4 secs.

Um, for any accuracy you would also need wind speed and to know at what elevation the ball was caught.

You can not accurately slow this without time.

for a general speed100 meter per second because most balls only stay in the air for about one second.if two seconds then 50meters per second.the trig function is barely necessary for a short distance.
without the time function,accuracy cannot be brought into perspective.
the angle off the bat doesnt matter because whats its relativity to the ground.the ball may have traveled directly up 50meters and down 50meters off a bat swung at an angle of 150degrees.
in fini.unless its a riddle there is no perfect answer.imho

I am assuming the question is a basic ballistic trajectory question so assuming the ball was launched at 30 degrees and is caught on roughly the same plane and ignoring the atmospheric friction and wind and such you can calculate the speed that is was launched if the distance is known because it will decelerate in the upward direction by the known rate of gravity and accelerate downward by the same.
