How far do you travel if, starting from rest, you accelerate at 1.5 m/s2 for(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

4.0 s, then coast for 8.0 seconds, then decelerate to a standstill in 4.0 s?

I am totally confused about the fact you accelerate and then coast, and then slow down. We have 3-t's in this problem and don't know what formula to use.
