This question is just a practice for creating equations for suiting situations but i feel as if I've taken the completely wrong appoach..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two cars begin to move toward each other simultaneously along a straight road. Car 1 starts from point A at a speed of V1; Car 2 starts at point B at a speed V2.The acceleration of car 1 is a1; it is directed toward A,

The acceleration of car 2 is a2; it is directed toward B. In the process of motion, the cars meet twice; the time interval between the meetings is t. Find the distance between A and B.

Some help would be great, so far my approach was using kinematic formulas.

I finished with [tex]D = \sqrt{\frac{Vi1*T*a1*T^2}{Vi2*T*a2*T} } [/tex]

Sorry about the mathlatex in currently reading the guide.
