Homework Help: physics

Posted by John on Saturday, August 28, 2010 at 6:03pm.

This is a sample question:

A man jogs at a speed of 1.2 m/s. His dog waits 2 s and then takes off running at a speed of 4.1 m/s to catch the man. How far will they each have traveled when the dog catches up with the man?

The answer is 3.3931 m.

I just need to know the process to solve this practice problem so I can use that to solve my actual problem. I don't want to post my actual problem because I feel that could be akin to cheating if someone answered it.

Thank you in advance!

I felt like I should set the two equations equal to one another (since at a certain time their distances will be equal) but I'm failing to come up with a workable equation or process.
