    d = |1.5 – 53t| 0.1 = -(1.5 - 53t) 0.1 = 1.5 - 53t 0.1 =53t - 1.5 1.5 + 0.1 = 53t 1.6/53 = t t = 108.67 secs 53t = 1.5 - 0.1 53t = 1.4 t = 1.4/53 t = 95.09 secs

    Yeah, double checked I got it. You can solve this problem in 2 ways. 1st way by pure math abs( anything ) = something means anything =+something and/or anything =-something and solve for t also you can think of this as a physics problem with zero acceleration, deduce your position function and find the times at the desired distances.

    You didn't know, but I was explaining to you. That's all I can try to do is communicate with you and explain to you. All you have to do is not overreact.
