```							 After 2s the thief would be at a distance of 50m fromthe police car.We shall consider this to be t=0.let after a time t the distance be max.then the distance between the check post and the thief would be 50+25t.......(i)the police car would be at a distance of 2.5t^2from the check post...........(ii) then the distance between them would be x=50+25t-2.5t^2this would be max when dx/dt=0which implies dx/dt=25-5t=0therefore t=5s.hence x=50+125-62.5=112.5(ans)

```							Dear student speed(car) = 90 km/h => 25 m/s speed(police) max = 108 km/h => 30 m/sec time(police) to get to 25 m/s = 25/5 = 5 s distance will increase until the police speed reaches 25 m/s: d(thief) = s * t_total = 25 (5 + 2) =175 m d(police) = 1/2 * a * t^2 = 1/2 * 5 * 5^2 = 62.5 m
