**Need help with "motion" question..please!**

## Homework Statement

you are sitting in a car that is stopped. The moment a biker passes you, you start accelerating at 3 m/s2, while the bicycle continues to move along at a constant speed of 9 m/s. After what distance will you catch up with the biker?

From the question, the info I have is v=9m/s V0=0 a=3m/s*2

So I think I would put it into V=V0+at and solve for t. Then use all info including the new t into x=x0+v0+1/2at*2

I keep getting it wrong...any ideas?
