In this problem the easiest way to solve is you can assume that the centre of mass of the particle will continue to follow projectile motion.
As we know particle of mass 2m lands at 100m.
Time period
v = u + at
20\sqrt{2} \sin 45 =10t taking g = 10m/s2
t = 2 sec = half of flight so total time = 4 sec
So range of projectile if it had not exploded = 80m
So the com of the particle will also land at 80 m
80 = \frac{2m\times 100 + x}{3m}
x = 40m.
