Hey, Im not sure why I cant get the right answer for my online physics homework, it keeps telling me the answer Im putting is wrong! My question is:

The light turns green, and a bicyclist starts forward with an acceleration of 1.0 m/s^2. How far must she travel to reach a speed of 7.8 m/s?

I think Im going about figuring it out the wrong way...

Thanks for any help! :)
