## Homework Statement

A car starts from rest and accelerates uniformly at 3.0 m/s^2 a second car starts from rest 6 seconds later at the same point and accelerates uniformly at 5 m/s^2. How long does it take the second car to overtake the first car.

## Homework Equations

d=vit+(1/2)at^2 I know that there might be a quadratic equation to solve for x.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I came across this question at this website: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/i...6cAp8NojzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20090917181717AAiO4kQ and I have been stuck on it for about 20 minutes.

Again this is not my homework, but I do need help.
