The question goes as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

A truck covers 40.0 m in 8.50 s while smoothly slowing down to final speed +2.40 m/s.

Find the original speed

Find the acceleration

Now, I tried a couple things for the speed, I tried 40/8.50, and I tried (4.71/2.40) and both turned out to be wrong. Not sure of how to get the speed, couldn't get acceleration either.
