Unhappy Velocity in Momentum

How do you get the velocity after a collision if one body towards left have a mass of 5kg while the other body with a mass of 10kg with a velocity of 2m/s towards right. How do you find the velocity of the body with the mass of 5kg towards left?

Your statement doesn’t make much sense. Maybe you should post the entire problem as it was given to you ...

This is the illustration of the problem.

If that is a post collision diagram, the speed of the 5kg mass would depend upon the initial momentum of the system ...
Thanks from Benit13

Do you have a diagram of the situation *before* the collision?
