(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. A train is moving parallel and adjacent to a highway with a constant speed of 28 m/s. Initially a car is 59 m behind the train, traveling in the same direction as the train at 43 m/s and accelerating at 5 m/s^2. What is the speed of the car just as it passes the train? Answer in terms of m/s.

If someone could please help me by explaining how to solve this problem I would very much appreciate it.
