**Pleas help! exam tommarow!!!! Trigonometry word problems**

Hi, i really need help with this question,

on a wall, a spider is 100cm above a fly. the fly starts moving horizontally at the speed of 10cm/s. After 1s, the spider begins moving at twice the speed of the fly, in such a way as to intercept the fly by taking a straight line path. In what direction does the spider move, and how far has the fly moved when they meet?

How do I do this question? it just sayes the fly moved horizonally how do you know witch way it went, wont that determine where the spider went??? and I oll have one measure ment 100cm??? Can someone pleas help me throught the problem? I really don't know where to start
