Homework Help: M/s^3 to m/s^2

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
distance= z + b*time + x*(time^2) + y*(time^3)

x=0,2m/s^2
y=0,15m/s^3

I have to calculate after how long time the speed has increased by 10 m/s

3. The attempt at a solution
I have no idea what to do with m/s^3

Yeah, sorry, I didn't write the formula correctly that was given in this exercise.. I edited the OP.
distance= z + b*time + x*(time^2) + y*(time^3)

z is some distance
b is starting speed

I have really bad English when it comes to terminology, so I hope you can understand now.

How is the velocity related to the distance travelled?
