Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Lindsay on Sunday, November 4, 2007 at 2:07pm.

A helicopter is flying in a straight line over a level field at a constant speed of 21.7 m/s and at a constant altitude of 11.5 m. A package is ejected horizontally from the helicopter with an initial speed of 21.6 m/s relative to the helicopter, and a direction opposite to the helicopter's motion. Find the initial speed of the package relative to the ground.

I thought I knew how to do this...until I saw that they give an altitude. Can someone give me the first steps? I can probably get it after that.
