In a historical movie, two knights on horseback start from rest 91 m apart and ride directly toward each other to do battle. Sir George's acceleration has a magnitude of 0.18 m/s2, while Sir Alfred's has a magnitude of 0.33 m/s2. Relative to Sir George's starting point, where do the knights collide?

    use
    u=initial velocity=0 m/s
    a=acceleration, m/s²
    t=time in seconds
    Distance S = ut+(1/2)at² m
    for each knight.
    The sum of the distances is 91 m.
    Solve for t and hence the distances travelled by each.

    i still don't understand how to write this equation
