so this is a problem about relativity. the trick is to set the observer = to 0. This means you are trying to picture how the pink car looks to the blue car as if the blue car were at rest. so it would simply be 55 - 36

so you wouldnt do anything with acceleration?

No because the problem never specified there was a change in acceleration so we will have to make the assumption that they are travelling at a constant velocity.
