Kinematics Question

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Dave and Andrew are racing. Dave running at a constant speed of 20m/s is passed by Andrew. 2.0s after Andrew passes, Dave accelerates at 1.0m/s^2 until he catches up with Andrew 25s later. What is Andrew’s velocity (he does not accelerate)?

2. Relevant equations

Kinematics Formulas.

3. The attempt at a solution

Dave travels 812.5m.

I’m not sure if the way I did it was correct. Can someone please tell me how to do it. If you think I’m right though can you please tell me. Thanks!!
