I got the answer but I'm not sure why this is the answer.

Constants
Part A
A movie stuntwoman drops from a helicopter that
is 30.0 m above the ground and moving with a
constant velocity whose components are 10.0
m/s upward and 15.0 m/s horizontal and toward
the south. You can ignore air resistance.
What is the horizontal distance(relative to the position of the helicopter when she drops)
at which the stuntwoman should have placed the foam mats that break her fall?
55.5 m
