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

You're driving at 70 km/h when you accelerate with constant acceleration to pass another car. Six seconds later, you're doing 80 km/h.

How far did you go in this time?

Express your answer using two significant figures.

2. Relevant equations

V= V(0)+at

V^2- V(0)^2 = 2a ( X-X(0) )

3. The attempt at a solution

I keep finding some large numbers like 125000 m. I think i'm doing something wrong with converting times. So can someone tell me how to do this problem?
