i'm having trouble solving this problem...hopefully someone can at least get me started

A raft of mass 180 kg carries two smimmers of mass 50 kg and 80 kg. The raft is initially floating at rest. The two swimmers simultaneously dive off opposite ends of the raft, each with a horizontal velocity of 3 m/s. With what velocity and in what direction does the raft start to move? (Note: there are three objects in the system)

Thanks
