a turtle is moving with a constant acceleration along a straight ditch. He starts a stopwatch as the turtle passes a fence post and notes that it takes him 10s to reach a pine tree 10m farther along a ditch. as the turtle passes the pine tree, his speed is 1.2m/s.

how far was he from the fence post when he started from rest??

8m i think

first find the velocity at teh fecne post (u = 2a/s - v) then find the acceleration, which is constant for the entire trip, then it's a matter of using the info to find the total distance traveled and minus that from 10.
