It is 100 m

Since this is motion in only one dimension, it is a relatively simple problem to solve.

As we're given time, acceleration and initial velocity, we can use our **time dependent equation of kinematics**, which is:

Now let's list out our given values:

So now all we need to do is plug in and solve:

However, we would round this down to 100 because of the 1 significant digit in our given information (if you have 50. and 7.0, you would round it to 2 sig figs, which would be 110).

Hope that helped :)
