Question description

A cat is 100 feet behind a squirrel. They both run at top speed in the same direction in a straight line. In about how many seconds will the cat catch up to the squirrel? Cat runs 44.00 ft per second and Squirrel runs 17.60 ft per second.  The answer on the key says just over 4 seconds but I don't get that answer.
