A plane flying horizontally at a speed of 50m/s and at an elevation of 160m drops a package. two seconds later it drops a second package. How far apart will the two packages land on the ground?

a)100m

b)162m

c)177m

d)283m

i think the answer is a) I got 150m for the first package and 50m for the second package. so the distance b/w them would be 100m.
