One-dimensional motion with constant acceleration(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a body moving with uniform acceleration has a velocity of 12.0cm/s when its x coordinate is 3.00 cm. If its x coordinate 2.00s later is -5.00cm, what is the magnitude of its acceleration?

i am guessing that you use the equation for velocity in form of displacement, but im not sure at all

some help on just picking an equation to use for this problem and starting the problem for me wud be greatly appreciated. more posts coming because im so totally lost in this chapter.
