Question description

Santa is running late and needs to drop a present down a chimney. His sleigh is traveling south at 30 feet/second relative to the air, but has a tailwind coming from 27 degrees east of north at 10 feet/second. It will take the present 3 seconds to fall from the sleigh to the chimney. If the coordinates of the chimney are (0,0), what are the coordinates of the point Santa needs to be above when he drops the present?
