(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); acceleration. linear motion. i'm stuck!!!

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

a train moves at a velocity of 60 m s^{-1}and stops after a distance of 600m. what is its deceleration?

2. Relevant equations

v=s/t

3. The attempt at a solution

this is my working:

u= 0 m s^{-1}

v= 60 m s_{-1}

s= 600 m

v=s/t

60=600/t

t=10 s

...and i'm stuck here. please help!!!
