(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A pedestrian is jogging on a path and sees a boat coming towards him. He's moving at 10 km/hr and the boat is moving at 20km/hr, how quickly does the jogger approach the boat?

2. Relevant equations

I'm guessing these:

Vf = vi + a * t

D = vi*t +1/2 a * t^2

Vf^2 = Vi^2 +2a * D

3. The attempt at a solution

well i converted the speeds to m/s

Jogger:2.77 m/s

Boat:5.55 m/s

other than that I've got no idea

I know we need a time and a distance and maybe acceleration?
