Jack is 12m from the bus and is running towards the bus at a constant 4.0m/s. If the bus accelerates away from the bus stop at .8m/s^2, can he catch the bus? If so where?

Vi= initial velocity

vf=final velocity

a= acceleration

d=distance

t=time

I found out that it takes Jack 3 seconds to reach where the bus was originally at the 12m. But after that i have no clue how to finish it.
