Physics

A 5000 kg truck rear ends a 2500 kg car. Both vehicles applied brakes at the moment of the impact and began to skid. After the impact, the acceleration of the truck is -2 m/s and the acceleration of the car is -3 m/s. If the car skid for 30 m and the truck for 2 m, how fast was the truck going after the collision?
