Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you wouldnt do anything with acceleration?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1No 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.
