Two masses collide on a frictionless horizontal floor and in

Two masses collide on a frictionless horizontal floor and in a perfectly inelastic collision. Mass 1 is 4 times that of mass 2. Velocity of mass 1 = 12 m/s to the right while the velocity of mass 2 = 18 m/s to the left. What is the velocity and direction of the resulting combined mass? Round your answer to 2 decimal places.
