Answer:

See the approach below...

Explanation:

We simply know the formula that
#S=ut+-1/2at^2# [Where S#->#distance travelled, u#->#initial velocity, t#->#time taken, -a#->#retardation...,+a#->#acceleration...

Hence we can use the formula to determine the Distance...
#S=5xx2-1/2xx2xx2^2#
#S=6m#

Hope it helps...
Thank you...
