    I know that the slope of the position vs time graph is velocity and that the velocity vs time graph the slope is acceleration

    but how can you find instantaneous acceleration with the position vs time graph?

    sounds like mumbo jumbo it can't be any graph, it needs to be a v-t graph but i think the want you to see this |dw:1442342127874:dw|

    so I would just say what i previously said and that the slope of the tangent of the velocity vs time graph gives me the instantaneous acceleration. that would be it?

    sounds good
