A skateboarder coasts down a long hill for 6.00 seconds with constant acceleration, and starting from rest, covers a distance x1. On a second trip down the same hlil starting fron rest, he coasts for 2.00 seconds, covering a distance x2. Find the ratio of x1 to x2.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

To me the obvious answer would be

6s to 2s, so 3 to 1.

But something tells me it's not that simple.

What am I missing?
