I guess my brain is fried, I can't figure out what formula to use for this problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two trains, one traveling at 72 km/h and the other at 133 km/h, are headed toward one another along a straight, level track. When they are 860 m apart, each engineer sees the other's train and applies the brakes. The brakes decelerate each train at the rate of 1.0 m/s2.

What is the braking distance for each train?
