Hey, im new... A good friend of mine told me that i could come here if i ever needed help in physics... Well now is really a bad time to tell you guys this... but i have a final exam in 2 days...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Im having a problem to solve this question maybe you could guide me some how

Quote " A starship voyages to a distant planet 10 lyr away. The explores stay 1 yr, return at the same speed, and arrive back on earth 26 years after they left. Assumer that the time to accelerate and decelerate are negligible.

A)what is the speed of the starship.

The problem i think i'm setting the problem right, its just i get a quadratic equation when i do. and im not sure if this is right.

If anyone could guide me it would be greatly appreciated
