This is the given problem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Cars A and B approach each other on a straight road from points 457 m apart. A has an initial velocity of 20 m/s and is decelarating at the rate of 0.4 m/s². B has an initial velocity of 5 m/s and is accelerating at the rate of 0.3 m/s². When will the cars meet and how far will car A have travelled?

note: this is not homework guys. I just want to recall my physics. Thanks in advance.
