How do you solve for impulse in a system where both carts are moving in the same direction and they collide?

Hi So my question is as follows: there is a 34kg mass and a 81kg mass on a track. they collide, where both are moving in the same direction, and have a final velocity of 0.9m/s. the 34kg block's velocity is unknown (it is at the back), and the 81kg block's initial velocity is 0.5m/s. The surface is frictionless. I need help finding the magnitude of the impulse for the 34kg block due to collision.
