Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Confused on Tuesday, October 28, 2008 at 7:39pm.

A box moves down a conveyor belt the is angled at 15 degrees, at a rate of 6m/s. The box then enters a dump off that is 3m below the end of the belt, what is the horizontal distance between the dump off and the belt?

I have no idea where to start with this...I know you have x and y components of something but I don't know what to do...any help in the right direction would be appreciated.
