An actor in an action movie is supposed to jump up and catch a ring moving overhead which will carry him to safety. The ring is 8 m above the actor and moving at 12 m/s to the right. The actor jumps straight up and catches the ring at the peak of his jump. How far to the left of the actor is the right when he must jump?
