d1x will not equal to d2x because the balls have a radius.
When they are colliding, they would not be at the exact same position and the balls' radius are unknown.
I have been trying to solve this for three days and nothing worked T.T

Seeing that you posted this in the High School/Pre-University forum I doubt you will have to use the radius of the balls (which could pose some complications.) I advise you to check your instructor about this feature.
