i have a question from mastering physics(online site that i do my hw on) that i dont get.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question: Find the dimensions [a] of acceleration.

Express your answer as powers of length (l), mass (m), and time (t).

and here's a small hint they give you for the equation for acceleration:

In physics, accelerationais defined as the change in velocity in a certain time. This is shown by the [tex] a = \triangle v/\triangle t[/tex].. The [tex]\triangle[/tex] is a symbol that means "the change in."

[a] = _______ (answer can only be expressed in l,m and/or t)
