Homework Help: Motion problem

  1. Jun 23, 2010 #1
    A wheelbarrow is released from rest and, with constant acceleration, goes down a hill. Between 3seconds and 5seconds, the displacement is 12m, and between 9s and 11s, the displacement is 48m. What is the acceleration?

    i'm not sure how to do a question where the intervals are not beside each other. should i set some equations equal to eachother?
