You are driving down the highway late one night at 20 \rm m/s when a deer steps onto the road 35 m in front of you. Your reaction time before stepping on the brakes is 0.50 s , and the maximum deceleration of your car is 10 m/s^2 . How much distance is between you and the deer when you come to a stop?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have already found the answer to be 5 meters between me and the deer and now it wants me to "Determine the time required for you to stop once you hit the brakes. Im confused on how to get this value. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
