**1. Homework Statement**

A car passes through traffic lights as they turn from red to green at a speed of 12ms

^{-1}. A motorcyclist, starting from rest, accelerates from the traffic lights in the same direction as the car at 1.5ms

^{-2}. After what distance from the lights will they meet? (OPTIONS: 16m, 120m, 168m, 192m).

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

12t = d, and 1.5t

^{2}= d.

12t = 1.5t

^{2}.

1.5t

^{2}- 12t = 0.

t(1.5t -12) = 0.

t = 0 or 8.

12ms

^{-1}* 8s = 96m. Not an option.
