Runner A, who runs with an average speed of 3.0 m/s, starts out at 3:00 P.M. Runner B, who runs with an average speed of 4.0 m/s, starts after A from the same place exactly 5 min later.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a.) At what time will runner B catch up with runner A?

b.) If the runners stop when B catches A, how far do they run?

So far I have 4.0 m/s*300 s = 1.2 Km and 3.0 m/s x 300s= 0.9 km, but I don't even know if this is the right aproach, can anyone help me from here?
