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

Calculate the time taken for particle A to catch up with particle B.

See attachment for variables.

I worked out the answer by finding the relative velocity of A wrt B but apparently theres another method I should have/could have used to solve it?

2. Relevant equations

SUVAT equations of motion

3. The attempt at a solution

See attachment.

Thanks
