A train starts from a station A, and moves with uniform acceleration. In 1.5 minutes it passes a station B, and 1 minute later another station C. If the distance between B and C is 1,200 yards, find (a) the acceleration of the train, (b) the distance between A and B.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I do not know how to find the acceleration!

The formulae are: v=u+at; s=ut+1/2at^2; v^2=u^2+2as;

where: v= final velocity, in ft/s,

u= initial velocity, in ft/s,

a= acceleration, in ft/s/s,

t= time in seconds.

Thanks in advance.
