Homework Help: physics

Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, October 7, 2007 at 10:56pm.

The leader in a bicycle race passes your viewing position at t=0 with a speed of 30 mph. Ten seconds later, the next racer goes by at 40 mph. Assuming their speeds are constant, where will the second cyclist catch up to the first? (Give this as a distance from your position)

I understnad that bike 1 passes at t=o and 10 sec later bike 2 passes. I just don't know what formula to use to help me figure out the problem
