**[SOLVED] Kinematic Equations**

This is the question. I have sat here and tried to figure out how to even start this problem for hours. I can't seem to get it through my head. If someone could help me set it up, I can figure out the rest I think. Thanks in Advance.

Q. A car and a motorcycle start from rest at the same time on a straight track, but the motorcycle is 25.0 m behind the car. The car accelerates at a uniform rate of 3.70m/s^2 and the motorcycle at a uniform rate of 4.40m/^2. (a) How much time elapses before the motorcycle overtakes the car? (b) How far will each have traveled during that time? (c) How far ahead of the car will the motorcycle be 2.00 s later? (Both vehicles are still accelerating.)

Anyway... Some assistance in setting it up would be much appreciated. Thanks.
