There is a platform moving at a constant velocity 100. The distance to the 'end' is 75.

I have 50 clock ticks to begin slowing down at a constant rate so the platform reaches the end spot and is at zero velocity at the end of the time.

I need to know how much to reduce the velocity each clock tick.

I know the equation:

a = 2(d-vt) / t^2

However this doesn't seem to work for this case. Am I using the wrong formula?
