a man running on a straight path at 3 meters per second accelerates uniformly to a speed of 5.23 meters per second in 9.65 seconds. What is the total distance traveled? What formula can i use?

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

    a would be the acceleration.

    what would it be in this case though? like what number?

    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.

    what did u end up getting for acceleration because i got 4 and then did the problem and got it wrong..

    you should setup the problem and show me how you did it. but the answer came out to be 39.7
