    What have you tried?
    I assume that you know the kinematic equations.

    x=x_{0}+v_{0}t+\frac{1}{2}at^{2}

    For each of the particles you are given the initial position x_{0}
    Their initial velocity v_{0} and their acceleration a.

    Hint: for simplicity since Z is arbitrary and you are only care about distance from z you might as well put the origin of your coordinate system at z and so z=0.

    Now write out each of the kinematic equations you will get a system of 2 equations in x and t.
