Apologizes for being a first time poster. I've been staring at this question to no avail for the last hour, and was looking for some help with it. Any would be appreciated.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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

A body starting from rest travels 100m in the sixth second of its motion. If the acceleration is constant, what is its magnitude?

3. The attempt at a solution

Using the kinematic equations, I have only been able to find the Avg Velocity for the single second, which doesn't help out. Other then that, I'm stumped.
