In a historical movie, two knights on horseback start from rest 62 m apart and ride directly toward each other to do battle. Sir George's accleration has a magnitude of 0.21 m/s2, while Sir Alfred's has a magnitude of 0.26 m/s2. How far from Sir George's starting point do the knights collide?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

62 - x = (1/2)*(0.21 m/s^2)t^2

62 - x = (1/2)*(0.26 m/s^2)t^2

I was trying to find any velocity or any time but i can't seem to conceive anything logic that would work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
