1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A car of mass 1100kg is traveling at a constant velocity of 60 km/hr, east. The coefficient of friction between the tires and the road is 0.45.

The driver of the car sees the traffic light in front turning red and steps on the brake, only to find that the brakes are not working. If the car is 35m before the intersection when this happens, would it be able to come to a stop before entering the intersection?

2. Relevant equations

F = ma

d = vt + 1/2at^2

vf^2 = vi^2 + 2ad

vf = vi + at

3. The attempt at a solution

I've fiddled around with the bottom three kinematic equations, but I don't seem to be getting anywhere..
