TRAIN 1 VS TRAIN 2

Two trains are headed for each other on a railroad track. One is moving with velocity 105 km/h (east) and the other with velocity 122km/h (west).

When the trains are 1.3 km apart, the engineers both simultaneously realize the danger of collision and begin braking with an acceleration value of 0.9 m/s^2. Decide if the trains can stop before collision and if there is no crash, how far apart are the trains?
