(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

" A body moving with constant acceleration travels consecutively over two equal 10m segments of its path S. Find the acceleration "a" of the body and its speed v(not) at the start of the first segment, if the first segment is traversed in t(1) = 1.06 seconds and the second in t(2) = 2.2 seconds "

2. Relevant equations

equations I have defined :

I also know the acceleration is going to be negative since it takes longer for the body to cross the second segment of equal distance. The body is slowing down

3. The attempt at a solution

I am having trouble eliminating the v(0).
