A car starts from rest and travels for 6.0 s with a uniform acceleration of +2.7 m/s2. The driver then applies the brakes, causing a uniform acceleration of −1.0 m/s2. If the brakes are applied for 1.0 s, determine each of the following.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(a) How fast is the car going at the end of the braking period?

(b) How far has the car gone?

So, I already found out part a which is 15.2m/s by utilizing the equation v=v(initial)+at. I'm having some trouble finding the distance traveled with two different accelerations.
