Two cars A and B are moving in the same direction along a straight horizontal road. At time t = 0 they are side by side, passing a point O on the road. Car A travels at a constant speed of 30ms^-1. Car B passes O with speed of 20ms^-1, and has a constant acceleration of 4ms^-2
Time when B overtakes A?

At which time the car A overtake car B if the speed of the car B is 20 m/s^-1 and has a constant acceleration of 4m/s^-2 whereas, car A has a constant speed of 30 m/s
No idea in how to begin.
Construct the two equations for displacement in terms of using SUVAT and solve them simultaneously.Last edited by RDKGames; 31-10-2016 at 00:41.

Here's my working to the question:
I've realised it's been already said, but I worked it out so here you go anyways :P
