(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); kinematics question help please :)?

So I've tried to attempt this problem by finding possible things like time or velocity but it just does not come out right. Help is greatly appreciated :)

Problem:

At the instant the traffic light turns green, an automobile starts with a constant acceleration a of 2.0 m/s^2. At the same instant a truck is 13.4 m down the road and traveling with a constant speed of 9.3 m/s. (a) How far beyond the traffic signal will the automobile overtake the truck? (b) How fast will the automobile be traveling at that instant?

heres some work I did:

Truck:

v=x/t

9.3=13.4/t

t= 1.44 s

Thanks :)
