Ok so I have this physics problem but for some reason I feel like its a typo or im missing some informtion, here is the problem

A bicycle os moving east beginning at a position of X1=2.0m at T1=0.0s. At the time T2=2.0s
find the bicycle's
A) position, X2
B) velocity, V2
C) acceleration, a

Im new to physics so i could be wrong but am i missing some information here? i feel like i would need an initial velocity or final or something right? can you just tell me is these questions can be solved with the information provided? a yes or no....THANKS

Indeed it seems you are missing the information to complete the question.

hey.... i could help u!

you can used the ratio proportion method.....
where:
d1=distance1
d2=distance2
t1=time consumed (1st)
t2=time consumed (2nd)

d1:t1 = d2:t2

Note that in doing this, you are implicitly assuming constant (average) velocity.
Also, no distances were given.
