    **tough question

    An alaskan rescue plane traveling 40 m/s drops a package of emergency rations from a height of 171 m to a stranded party of explorers.
    The acceleration of gravity is 9.8m/s^2
    Where does the package strike the ground relative to the pt driectly below where it was released?

    ok so i tried this problem a bunch of times and my answer keeps coming up incorrect. What formulas should I use?
