Cars A and B are racing each other along the same straight road in the following manner: Car A has a head start and is a distance Da beyond the starting line at t=0. The starting line is at x=0. Car A travels at a constant speed Va. Car B starts at the starting line but has a better engine than Car A, and thus Car B travels at a constant speed Vb, which is greater than Va.
A. How long after Car B started the race will Car B catch up with Car A?
B. How far from Car B's starting line will the cars be when Car B passes Car A?

I know that average velocity is equal to (displacement)/(total time). I'm not sure if I can use that to find the unknown time amount of the question.
