Physics

A 1800 kg mass car is traveling south at a velocity of 15 m/s through an intersection. It is hit by a 3500 kg mass car traveling east at 20 m/s. If the two cars collide and become one object (perfectly inelastic). What will be the final displacement of the cars after the collision if the coefficient of kinetic friction between the road and the tires is 0.8?
