A private airplane leaves Midway Airport and flies due east at a speed of 180 kph. Two hours later, a jet leaves Midway and flies due east at a speed of 900 kph. how far from the airport will the jet overtake the private plane?

I need some help with this problem. Please explain how to set up the equation. Once it is set up, I completely know how to solve it. Thanks in advance!
