Homework Help: Initial velocity of an object

  1. Mar 30, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    What was the initial velocity of an object that moved 120m in 5.60s, reaching a final velocity of 15.0m/s in that time?

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I was wondering is there an acceleration that i'm missing here? or am i just off?
    I've been using this eq. v1=v2-a(changeintime)
    Someone help :(
