**1. Homework Statement**

Investigating the scene of a car accident you measure the skid marks of one of the cars to be 100.0ft long. Assuming that the maximum deceleration on dry pavement is 0.75g, what was the minimum speed of the car(in mph) when it slammed on the brakes?

**2. Homework Equations**

x=x0 + v0t +1/2at^2

v=v0 + at

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

I know I need to solve for t, but I can't seem to wrap my ahead around setting up the equations for these types of problems. A helpful nudge would be appreciated.
