The acceleration will be the change in velocity, divided by the time it took to change that velocity. Think of it this way -- the smaller the time, the higher the acceleration, right?

Yes. The mixed units for the answer that they ask for are quite strange, and you normally would not leave your answer in mixed units, but they seem to be doing that just to make it easier for you to do the first steps of the math.then i just divide 40 by 5 right?
