On a horizontal frictionless table, masses A and B (3 kg, 6 kg) slide to the right and left, respectively. They have speeds of 3 m/s and 1 m/s, respectively. The two masses collide, and bounce off each other. After the collision, they travel in opposite directions at speeds of 1.5 m/s and 1.250 m/s, respectively.

Calculate the kinetic energy of the A+B system:
before collision:
after collision
