(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A reckless motorcyclist drives past a school zone at a constant speed of 15 m/s , where the speed limit is only 10 m/s. at the same moment a police officer chases the motorcyclist from rest and accelerating at the rate of 3 m/s?

a. how fardoes the police travel before catching up to the motorcyclist?

b. how much time does it take the police car to catch up to the motorcyclist?

c. how fast is the police car traveling when it catches the motorcyclist?

2. Relevant equations

V(bar)=d/t, a= deltaV/t,

3. The attempt at a solution

okay, so i know that displacement is equal to each other, i've set the equations equal to each other and then solved for t....??
