**1. Homework Statement**

A jet flys at a constant speed of 240 m/s past an antiaircraft missile battery. A time 2.326e+01 s later, an intercepter missile is launched (from rest). The missile has an acceleration of 40 m/s^2.

How much time (from the instant the missile is launched) does it take the missile to catch up to the jet?

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I honestly dont even know where to begin. I believe i will at some point have a quadratic formula to work with, is this correct?? I think i need to find where the distances are equal then find the time.
