    \[x _{f}=x _{i}+v _{1}\Delta t+\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }a \Delta t ^{2}\]

    a would be the acceleration.

    Actually the first equation you should use is this one \[v _{f}=v _{i}+a \Delta t\]

    this will help you compute your acceleration.

    ohh so first we solve for acceleration and then plug it into the other formula?

    then you could actually just use the formula \[v _{f}^{2}=v _{i}^{2}+2a \Delta x\] and compute the total distance.

    so you actually won't even need the first formula, so you can disregard it.
