Vroom-vroom! As soon as a traffic light turns green, a car speeds up from rest to 50.0 mi/h with a constant acceleration of 8.40 mi/hs. In the adjoining bike lane, a cyclist speeds up from rest to 20.0 mi/h with a constant acceleration of 11.5 mi/hs. Each vehicle maintains a constant velocity after reaching its cruising speed.
(a) For how long is the bicycle ahead of the car?

____________ s
(b) By what maximum distance does the bicycle lead the car?

Please explain how to solve this with the the necessary equations. Thanks!
