Homework Help: physics

Posted by Please help! on Thursday, December 11, 2008 at 11:03am.

A tourist being chased by an angry bear is running in a straight line toward his car at a speed of 4.38 m/s. The car is a distance d away. The bear is 25.4 m behind the tourist and running at 5.88 m/s. The tourist reaches the car safely. What is the maximum possible value for d?

I know the equations I need are...

d + x = v(bear) * t
d = v(person) * t

I just dont know what to do with them.
