    Any help to solve this problem will be appreciated

    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.

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