I don't require an answer to the problem itself, but rather a method I can use to solve it:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

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

You spot a deer down the road, so you brake to stop before hitting the deer. If your initial speed was 23m/s, what was your average velocity during braking? Deceleration was constant throughout braking.

2. Relevant equations

v=d/t

a=v/t

3. The attempt at a solution

I can't even begin to solve it, because I'm pretty sure I require an additional piece of data, such as the stopping distance, or the magnitude of the deceleration. Is there a way to solve it without this data?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
