Okay, I have an example problem that I'm trying to solve that comes with the answer; I'm just trying to figure out what to do.

A man jogs at a speed of 1.8 m/s. His dog

waits 2 s and then takes off running at a speed

of 4 m/s to catch the man.

How far will they have each traveled when

the dog catches up with the man?

Correct answer: 6.54545 m.

I think that I'll need to set the two equations equal and that I see that I'm given time and two sets of constant velocity but I looked at all my equations that I have and I can't figure out what equation I need.

Any help would be welcome.
