A cat is being chased by a dog. Both are running in a straight line at constant speeds. The cat has a head start of 3.3 m. The dog is running with a speed of 9.0 m/s and catches the cat after 6.7 s. How fast did the cat run?

I see that the velocity and time are given, so does that mean that i have to solve for the acceleration?
