I encountered yet another difficult one but this time, this problems a bit funny because theres 2 different cases that need to be put into consideration and I don't know exactly how to approach this question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It goes like this:

"A Pedestrian is running at her maximum speed of 6.0m/s to catch the bus stopped by a traffic light. When she is 25m from teh bus, the light changes and the bus accelerates uniformly at 1.0m/s^2. Find either (a) how far the pedestrian has to run to catch the bus or (b) her "frustration distance"."

I understand the first portion of the question, that is to check if she actually does catch the bus within 6 seconds. But, I don't exactly know how to show the work for this portion. What should I do?
