The ratio of the speed of a projectile at the point of projection to the speed at the top of its trajectory is x .

The angle of projection with the horizontal is ?

Let u be the velocity of projection and α is the angle of projection (angle made by velocity vector with horizontal).
At top of the trajectory, projectile has only horizontal component of velocity u×cosα .
Hence ratio of the projection velocity to the velocity at top most point = u / ( u×cosα )  = secα ............(1)
This ratio is given as x .  Hence the required ratio = secα = x .............(2)
from eqn.(2), we can write angle of projection α = cos-1 (1/x)
