(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

If Carol Ann wakes up and crawls across her bedroom at an aceeleration of 0.45 m/s^2 forward for 1.3s, how fast would she be going after 1.3 seconds if he had started with a velocity of 0.25 m/s forward?

2. Relevant equations

d = (v1+v2/2)t

a = v2 - v1 /t

3. The attempt at a solution

so we're looking for V right? Which would be v1 & v2.

v2 - v1 = at

= 0.25 x 1.3

= 0.325

but the answer here says 0.84 m/s forward.

What am I doing wrong? Please help, thank you so much.
