**drwls**, Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 6:19ama. Write equations for the locations of cars A and B vs. time. Set them equal and solve for t.

b. Use the t solution from a to solve for location (using either of the location vs t equations).

c. VA = 4t

VB = -15 - 3t

Use those equations and the time t from part a, to get VA and VB. Positive velocity is to the east.
