Could you reword the problem statement? I really don't quite know what you are asking.

Are you trying to find change in distance, [itex] \Delta x [/itex], for a given change in time, [itex] \Delta t [/itex], under uniform acceleration?

I have a couple other questions. Is my assumption correct that the acceleration is uniform (i.e., constant)? Is your coursework calculus based?

Please show us your work so far in your attempted solution.

That depends on many things you have not stated. For example, if the acceleration is in the same direction as the velocity, then the distance traveled will be positive. We cannot say much more than that until you tell use more about the acceleration. Is it constant? Does it depend on the current distance? Does it depend explicitly on time in some unspecified way?

Forum rules say you should at least attempt the problem.

What dont you understand about it?

Do you know what accelerate means?
