# Can you help me solve the problem and how i would solve it?

## A car is traveling down Fox Chapel road at a velocity of 25 m/s. A toddler suddenly runs out into the middle of the road. If it takes the driver 0.75 seconds to react and then apply the brakes, how many meters will the care have moved before it ever begins to slow down? Describe how they would solve the above problem

$18.25 m$

#### Explanation:

The car travels at a velocity of $25 \frac{m}{s}$ .
Thus, $u = 25 \frac{m}{s}$

She reacts after $0.75 s$
Thus, $t = 0.75 s$

Since distance$=$speed$\cdot$time,
distance travelled by the car before it starts to slow down is:

color(red)(u*t=25m/s*0.75s=18.25m
