A car is moving at 50.0 m/s and brakes to a halt in 6.00 seconds.

(1)From the time it starts braking, how far does the car travel before the car comes to a halt if its acceleration is constant?

(2)What is the car's speed 1.35 s after it starts to brake if the cars acceleration is constant?

2. Relevant equations

v=a*t+v_{o}

3. The attempt at a solution

I really just don't where to start with this problem. I'm confused! Please help!
