okay, this is simple and i feel ridiculous for asking, but i'm reviewing for my final and i do not remember how to do this type of problem..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Runner A runs toward a flag pole at a constant speed of 5.0 m/s. Runner B begins to run toward the flagpole at 3.0 m/s^2 when Runner A is 15 m ahead. When will Runner B catch Runner A?

I know I'll be setting two distance equations equal to each other, but beyond that I don't know what to do.
