What i have now is the initial relative position of A from B, which is 5j(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

initial velocity of A is 40i + 30j, the direction is changed so that it can overtake B.

Velocity of B is 12i + 16j.

I can find the speed of A, which is 50.

I tried to let the new velocity of A be 50(ai + bj), then here's the problem:

I tried to use

[tex] \\vec{r}_A = \\vec{r}_B [/tex]

r_A=r_B for which r represents the displacement.

but there are 3 unknowns and i'm stuck there...

*I'm having problem with the latex code... hope u can understand
