A tram leaves a station and accelerates for 2 minutes until it reaches a speed of 12 metres per second. It continues at this speed for 1 minute. It then decelerates for 3 minutes until it stops at the next station. The diagram shows the speed-time graph for this journey.
Calculate the distance, in metres, between the two stations

This is a help site, not an answer site. So let's try this a different way.

Have you studied calculus?

Do you have a formula that relates acceleration, time, and terminal velocity assuming initial velocity is zero?

Do you have a formula that relates acceleration, time, and average velocity assuming initial velocity is zero.

speed equals distance by time. This is as far s I got

va = 9v1 plus v0 divided by 2

you did not post the diagram ... fyi, the area between the speed vs time graph and the t-axis represents distance traveled.
