Would somebody be able to explain to me how to calculate the answer to this question? I'm studying for an exam and cannot figure it out.

Question:

The rear of a bicycle passes a point O on a road with a velocity 4 ms-1 and an acceleration of 2 ms-2. Four seconds later the front of a car passes O with a velocity of 2 ms-1 and acceleration of 4 ms-2. When and how far from O does the front of the car meet the rear of the bicycle?

Many thanks

John
