5kg travelling at 1m/s and the other is travelling 4m/s and weights 1kg.

Therefore this slows down the larger of the two fish proportionally. You need to use basics physics knowledge to answer the question. It will be beneficial for you to learn the right method so you can apply it in future rather than be told the answer!
