(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

determine the stopping distance for a car with an intitial speed of 26.9 m/s and a human reaction time of 0.9s for an acceleration of -4m/s^2

2. Relevant equations

x=vt t=v/a x=x+vt+.5at^2

3. The attempt at a solution

I used the second equation to find total time by adding it to .9s then plugged that into equation 3 and added that to x of the first equation?? what am i doing wrong??
