Math Help - What is the distance covered before the car comes to a stop?

1. What is the distance covered before the car comes to a stop?

I need a little help getting started. Any help is appreciated!

A car is traveling at 50 mph when the brakes are fully applied, producing a constant deceleration of 100 mph^2. What is the distance covered before the car comes to a stop?

HI

you can use the motion formulas , $v^2=u^2+2as$ , where v is final velocity , u , the initial velocity, a , the accleration , and s , distance travelled

$(0)^2=(50)^2+2(-100)s$

Solve for s
