(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Velocity and Acceleration Please Help!

My problem reads:

A particle is observed to move with the coordinates x(t)=(1.5m/s)t + (-0.5 m/s^2)t^2 and y(t) = 6m + (-3m/s)t + (1.5 m/s^2)t^2. What are the particle's position, velocity, and acceleration? At what time(s) are the velocity's horizontal and vertical components equal?

I got the derivative of x(t) and y(t) to get v(x) and v(y). Where do I go from there
