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

When you are 20m away from your bus it begins accelerating at 3 m/s/s (from rest). With what constant velocity should you run at to catch the bus?

2. Relevant equations

v-u=at

s=ut+[tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex]at[tex]^{2}[/tex]

v[tex]^{2}[/tex]=u[tex]^{2}[/tex]+2as

3. The attempt at a solution

I've done loads of ways.... and they are all wrong (spent hours). I just a want hint in the right direction as I'd like to solve this by myself. Can someone take me step by step?
