How can i solve this problem?

    A small parachute dropped from a 30.0 m high cliff falls with a constant velocity of 1.20 m/s. 20.0 s after the parachute is dropped, a stone is dropped from the cliff. Will the stone catch up with the parachute before it reaches the ground? (Include numerical proof!)
