A car speeding up from rest to constant accel. travels 100 meters in 6.04s. How far did it travel in the first 2.37 seconds?

So I figure if I divide distance by time 100/6.04 it will give me the velocity 16.5m/s. And since distance = vt I would do d=15.6*2.37 which equals 37.03m but this is wrong. I was also told to try drawing a graph of velocity vs time...but how can I graph numbers such as these (high and low #'s with decimals) If I can't graph it I can't find the slope or y intercept...so I'm lost
