\[t=3.2s\quad,\quad s=88m\quad,\quad v=17m/s\]\[v=v_0-at\quad\Rightarrow\quad a=\frac{v_0-v}{t}\]\[v^2=v_0^2-2as=v_0^2-2\frac{v_0-v}{t}s=v_0^2-\frac{2s}{t}v_0+\frac{2s}{t}v\]\[v_0^2-\frac{2s}{t}v_0+\frac{2s}{t}v-v^2=0\]\[v_0=\frac{\frac{2s}{t}\pm\sqrt{\left(\frac{2s}{t}\right)^2-4\left(\frac{2s}{t}v-v^2\right)}}{2}=\]\[=\frac{s}{t}\pm\sqrt{\left(\frac{s}{t}\right)^2-\frac{2s}{t}v+v^2}=\frac{s}{t}\pm\sqrt{\left(\frac{s}{t}-v\right)^2}=\]\[=\frac{s}{t}\pm\left(\frac{s}{t}-v\right)\quad\mbox{(only sign +)}\]\[v_0=\frac{2s}{t}-v=38m/s\]
OR Use this equation of motion S = {(u+v)/2}t 88m = {(u+17)/2}3.2 u=55-13 = 38m/s
how did you get a?

For constant accelarations, velocity is linear function of time and hence you can assume mean of initial and final velocities to be the average velocity. So, you don't need a actually.
oh that makes it easy been trying to figure that out all night
