  1. The law of conservation of linear momentum will allow you to solve this problem. They apparently want you to assume that the 15 kg body is initially stationary.

    M1*V1 = (M1 + M2)*V2
    M1 = 10 kg
    M2 = 15 kg
    V1 = 30 m/s
    Solve for V2.

  4. 10*30=(10+15)*V2

    300/25 =25V2/25

    V2=12m/s
