    You can't answer that question without knowing how the car slows down, unless you happen to know it is deacceleration at a constant rate. In that case, you can calculate the rate of acceleration and apply the formula for distance traveled under constant acceleration.

    Please do not post the same question in both "k-12" and "college"!
